Revisiting the borderline personality reviewed the thinking of various theorists on the general dynamics and etiology of the borderline. Inconsistencies within the Iiba training material were examined. Aspects reconsidered included the parent-child dynamic; the body-type including a new theory about why there is no single bodytype agreed upon; the age of the borderline wound, including a new theory about both age and the major block in the body. Fitting the borderline on the continuum of character types was examined using developmental charts from Mahler and Horner. Treatment cautions preceded dealing with breath, grounding and energy in the borderline client. Citing a new research study confirming BPD traits was followed by specific interventions for dealing with the relationship issues in treatment from a bioenergetic point of view.
