Understanding Borderline Personality Disorder: “I love you…I hate you.”

“Borderline” personality has it’s origins in the 1930s, when a psychoanalyst, Adolf Stern, noted that there were a group of emotionally troubled people who did not clearly fall into the two major clusters of psychopathology of that era: “neurotic” and “psychotic.” So, he called them a “borderland” group. The label, with slight modification, stuck. The BPD diagnosis has evolved considerably over the last 70 years, and it is now recognized as one of the Personality Disorders in the DSM-IV, the current diagnostic system in American Psychiatry.
