Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a highly prevalent disorder characterized by identity disturbance, emotion dysregulation, interpersonal difficulties and self-damaging behaviours. Mental health professionals most of the time encounter difficulties in the care of these hard-to-treat patients mainly due to the frequent crises often leading to drop-outs. In this perspective, technical and theoretical changes to traditional psychotherapeutic approaches were developed. We here give the major principles that should be considered when treating BPD patients in order not only to reduce the risk of being iatrogenic but also to apply the current psychotherapeutic and psychiatric modalities internationally recognized to be efficient.
