An Adlerian Interpretation of the Borderline Personality Related Papers

Bernard H. Shulman, M.D.

Schwartz-Salant: Bernard Shulman has published many papers on Adlerian psychology addressing diverse clinical issues in treatment of individuals and groups. He has made important contributions to our understanding of schizophrenia and the affective disorders, as well as such topics as dreams, sexuality, and psychiatric aspects of headaches. Among his latest publications is a book, co-authored with Forgus, entitled Personality Theory, a Cognitive View. His work lately is focused on the idea of personality styles and deals with personality factors in bipolar affective disorders. Dr. Shulman thus brings to us a rich psychiatric background. He is president of the International Association of Individual Psychology, and among other positions is a professor of Psychiatry at Northwestern Medical School. It is a great pleasure to introduce Bernard Shulman to you.

Michael Stone (1980) has recently pointed out that the borderline personality has been studied from at least three different points of view: as an attenuated form of psychosis (Kety et al, 1968); as a syndrome (Grinker et al, 1968; Gunderson and Singer, 1975); and as a level of functioning (Kernberg, 1980; Masterson and Rinsley, 1975; Rinsley, 1981). Some symptoms resemble affective disorders (Akiskal, 1981), some seem to indicate some organic brain dysfunction (Andrulonis et al, 1981).
