Borderline Personality Disorder: Factors associated with early dropout from therapy, impairments in cognitive functioning, and personality organization according to Inventory of Personality Organization
Summary:
In the current survey it was studied whether early dropout from psychotherapy regarding
patients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder was associated with cognitive
impairments, with clinical and demographic differences, and with differences regarding their
personality organization. The total sample was 55 patients, from which 38 continued
psychotherapy, 10 dropout, and 9 were left out from psychotherapy because of their unsuitability
for psychotherapy. No statistically significant differences were found between continuers and
dropouts regarding neither cognitive impairments, which were assessed with the Wisconsin Card
Sorting Test and the Stroop Color Word Test, nor personality organization, which was assessed
with the greek version of the Inventory of Personality Organization, nor clinical and
demographic characteristics, namely previous hospitalizations and suicidal attempts, and age,
gender, and educational level. The only statistically significant difference was unexpectedly
found regarding the food restraint facet of the greek version of the Eating Disorder Examination
Questionnaire. The results of the current study are not generalizable and future studies with
greater sample size should follow.
