CAPARROS SANCHEZ, Nicolas. Psychoanalytic treatment of personality disorders. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2007, vol.18, n.3, pp.363-380. ISSN 1130-5274.
After a short glance at Freuds psychoanalytic technique and their limitations, the author addresses the relevance of psychoanalytic therapies and its indications. Of outstanding importance are concepts such as the acting-out, the compulsion to repeat, the disentanglement of drives, and the inability to work through. Also, a number of reflections are made about the setting. Finally, a claim is made that psychoanalytic psychotherapy is not a second importance psychotherapy compared with standard therapies but the most suitable therapeutic device for treating personality disorders.
