Title: Dissociation : Vol. 1, No. 2, p. 002-015 : Toward A Psychobiological Theory Of Borderline Personality Disorder: Is Irritability the Red Thread that Runs Through Borderline Conditions?
Author: Stone, Michael H.
Abstract: This paper proposes a psychobiological model of the borderline conditions that explores the role of a hyperirritability that may either antedate parent-child interactions or stand apart from traditional developmental stages. It suggests that one pathway toward this hyperirritability is the traumatic effect of abuse, which may alter the neuroregulatory response system in ways that cannot be accounted for in purely developmental models. The therapeutic implications of this model are reviewed.
