Background & Aims: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the changes in borderline personality structure at different time serials of treatment.
Materials & Methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental and single-subject (A/B) study. The sample of study was a 35-year-old man who was selected as a borderline personality disorder among the patients referred to Health Center through a preliminary clinical interview and performing Millon clinical multiaxial inventory -III (MCMI-III) by available sampling method. The interview with the Semi-Structured Interview of the Personality Organization (STIPO) was conducted in four stages including one pre-test and three post-tests after time series treatment. Single-Subject was studied for 11 months in a format of 51 sessions of transference focused psychotherapy.
Results: The findings showed that the mean scores of personality structure (identity, dimensions of object relations, aggression, personality rigidity, deference mechanisms, and morality) in the first post-test were not significantly different from the pre-test; but there was a significant clinical difference in the mean scores of personality structure at the second and third post-tests compared to the pre-test.
