Analytical Work with a Teenager Close-Up (A Case Study)

Sorin A.V., PhD in Psychology, Assistant Professor on the Chair of Educational Psychology and Pedagogy, Department of Psychology, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia, sorintowa@list.ru
Abstract
Three psychoanalytical sessions of a teenager with symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD) are described. BPD is interpreted as an independent syndrome, characterized by a specific background, which needs certain strategies of psychological assistance. Characteristics of this syndrome and related psychological defense mechanisms are described. Strategy, tactics and technique of consulting are based on the goal — to enhance the quality of client’s adaptation to reality, which is not identical to the experience acquired in the family. Theoretical basis of consulting is object relations theory; the idea of containment is regarded as a determinant of overcoming primitive defenses and reconstruction of integral perception of reality by borderline personality.

Keywords: adolescents, borderline personality disorder, analytical work, object relations theory, defense mechanisms

Column: Case study
