The life perspective of borderline personality disorder : a literature study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Borderline personlighetsstörning (BPS) är en psykiatrisk diagnos som kännetecknas av emotionell instabilitet och problem med relationer. Både anhöriga och vårdpersonal uttrycker svårigheter i kontakten med en person som har BPS. Syftet med denna litteraturstudie är att sammanställa och belysa forskning och självbiografier som beskriver hur personer med BPS upplever sin livsvärld. För denna studie användes en kombination av två metoder, en litteraturstudie av empiriska studier och analys av självbiografier. Fyra teman utgör resultatet: hur de upplever affekter, att leva med känslomässig smärta. Deras syn på relationer, hur de upplever diagnosen som användbar eller inte och hur de upplever vårdkontakt. Resultatet kan tillämpas i klinisk praxis. Genom att se självskadebeteende som en copingstrategi för emotionell smärta kan relationen mellan sjuksköterska och patient underlättas. Att möta patienten med respekt, förståelse och en bekräftande attityd är eftersträvansvärt, likaså att hjälpa patienten att hitta bättre strategier för att hantera emotionell smärta.

Abstract [en]

Borderline personality disorder (BPS) is a psychiatric diagnosis which is characterized by emotional instability and relation problems. Both family members and health care personnel express difficulties in contact with persons with BPS. The purpose of this literature review is to compile and highlight research and autobiographies that describe how people with BPS perceive their life world. For this study a combination of two methods was used, a literature review of empirical studies and analysis of autobiographies. Four themes shows in the result: how they experience their affects, to live with emotional pain. Their view of relationships, how they experience the diagnosis as helpful or not and their contact with healthcare. The results can be applied to clinical practice by viewing deliberate self harm as a coping strategy for emotional pain and by meeting the patient with respect, understandning and a confirming attitude. Helping the person to find better strategies to handle emotional pain is also a way to apply the results of this study on clinical practice.
