Successful management of patient behaviors that interfere with the process of psychotherapy is essential to treating patients with borderline personality disorder. Provocative patient behaviors that induce a strong negative reaction from the therapist must be attenuated. Strategies for doing so used in four different treatment paradigms--Kernberg's expressive psychotherapy, Linehan's dialectical behavior therapy, Benjamin's interpersonal psychotherapy, and Allen's unified psychotherapy--are examined, and striking similarities are seen. A theoretical model is proposed to explain why the techniques may be effective.
