Borderline Personality Disorder: Ontogeny of a Diagnosis by John D Gunderson

BPDI recently read this article and found it very interesting indeed. It charts the years pre 1970’s to present date, although difficult to read about the way BPD had been sidelined, it does end on what would appear  to be  an optimistic future for a real understanding of BPD and  workable treatment plans for everyone.  

Really recommend  that you read it, it helps to give understanding to those caring for loved ones for a considerable length of time, one can see why it felt like we were banging our heads against a “brick wall”.   Its in PDF format and can be downloaded here
