Supportive Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder

The literature on supportive therapy  in relation to BPD is sparse although Appelbaum and Levy have published their perspectives in the American Journal of Psychoanalysis, 2002.  Techniques employed in supportive therapy include sympathetic listening, education, encouragement, limit setting, exhortation (to do or to refrain from certain behaviors), reassurance, advice, and validation.
