Abstract
Problematic interpersonal patterns, as defined by the core conflictual relationship theme (CCRT) method, are part of the clinical presentation of clients with borderline personality disorder (BPD). So far, we do not know whether the pervasiveness of interpersonal patterns changes and if this change explains therapy outcome.
In a secondary analysis of a randomized controlled trial on a brief version of psychiatric treatment for BPD, a treatment with a psychodynamic focus, the present study included N = 39 clients. One early session and one late session of the treatment were transcribed and analyzed using the CCRT method.
It appeared that pervasiveness of the predominant CCRT decreased over the course of the brief treatment; this effect was robust across treatment conditions. Change in pervasiveness in any CCRT component explained a small portion of variance of the decrease in borderline symptoms observed at the end of treatment.
Lessening of pervasiveness of problematic in-session interpersonal patterns may be hypothesized as potential mechanism of effective treatment for BPD which should be tested in controlled designs.
