Title: Dissociation : Vol. 1, No. 4, p. 041-046 : The differential diagnosis of multiple personality disorder from borderline personality disorder
Author: Kemp, Kristen; Gilbertson, Alan D.; Torem, Moshe S.
Abstract: Considerable controversy surrounds the relationship between multiple personality disorder (MPD) and borderline personality disorder (BPD). Some authors argue that MPD is a variant of BPD, and most agree that the differential diagnosis of the two is often very difficult. In this article data are presented from a study comparing historical, demographic and psychological testing variables between the two groups. No statistically significant differences were found between the two groups on these variables. However, certain trends emerged which may serve as a catalyst for further research. The relationship between the disorders may be complex; clinicians may need to use more sophisticated research techniques and develop more sensitive diagnostic criteria before it is understood.
