Meehan KB, Clarkin JF, Lenzenweger MF.
A summary of the article is shown below:
In part 2, the authors argue for a greater focus on a process approach to conceptualizing borderline personality disorder (BPD). The studies reviewed highlight contextual aspects of the pathology, specifically the affective and relational conditions under which BPD features become evident. The authors identify at what level in a complex social cognitive process the pathology may emerge. The implications of these findings for future model conceptualization are discussed, including the centrality of understanding BPD as an emergent phenomenon that cannot be reduced to single explanatory dimensions. The implications of these models for assessment, research, and treatment of BPD are discussed.
