Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in mood, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and the individual's sense of identity. Contributors from Europe and the US present the latest research on BPD. Some specific topics addressed include genetic epidemiology of borderline personality disorder, correlates and course of recovery in patients with BPD, and neurobiology of borderline personality disorder. Other subjects are proving the efficiency of music psychotherapy with borderline adolescents by means of a quasi- experimental design, a dissociative model of BPD, borderline symptomatology and empathic accuracy, patterns of interpersonal behaviors and borderline personality characteristics, and BPD and sexual impulsivity. Information on the editors is not given.
