Cooke, Kate Self At Zero - Bringing Spontaneity To The Treatment Of B P D (PDF, 71.4 KB) Journal 18 December 2009 Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a debilitating disorder of the self, the treatment of which to date has been largely confined to cognitive skills acquisition and verbal psychotherapies. This article describes the use of non-verbal kinaesthetic therapies, such as circus arts and action methods, in a specialist treatment centre. The effect of this new approach on clients at the centre is described with reference to the development of the false self, the self at zero, and the key element of spontaneity that provides the impetus for growth. 9 2009-12
Cooke, Kate Portrait of a Woman Diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, incorporating a Morenian Perspective (PDF, 374.2 KB) Journal 23 December 2014 alien self, attachment, Borderline Personality Disorder, psychiatry, social and cultural atom My desire to write this article was driven by two issues in my mind.

Secondly, I wanted to integrate concepts from various psychological or psychiatric perspectives with my thinking as a psychodramatist. 8 2014-12
