Background & Aims: Cognitive-analytical treatment of borderline personality disorder focuses on the process of reformulating the target problem, and its relationship to the patient's current problems. By reducing the confusion and mental occupations of patients, it causes improvement and also empowers the patient to reveal the origin and how to deal with harmful processes. The present study investigated the effectiveness of this treatment on the improvement and reduction of borderline personality disorder symptoms in affected soldiers.
Materials & Methods: This study was performed in the framework of an experimental design of multiple stepped baselines, with a treatment process of 16 sessions and a one- and three-month follow-up period on three soldiers. The Borderline Personality Scale (STB, 2001), the Graz and Roemer Emotion Difficulty Regulation Questionnaire (2), and the Barat Impulse Scale (BIS) were used as research tools.
Results: The results showed that improvement in the subscales of borderline personality disorder was evident, and the overall improvement rate was obtained among the three patients (approximately 80%), which indicated the effectiveness of cognitive-analytical therapy in reducing the symptoms of the disorder.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that cognitive-analytical psychotherapy has been effective in reducing symptoms, so that treatment caused significant changes in the symptoms of all three soldiers and the effect of treatment continued until the follow-up period.
