Hidden Trauma within the Care-Giver Relationship: An Account of Clinical Work with a Client Labelled as Having a “Borderline Personality Disorder”

Catherine Mitson

This is a paper about hidden trauma, unbearable vulnerability, and the impact of an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy on a patient given the diagnosis of having a “borderline personality disorder”.
