Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v61 n6 p1068-75 Dec 1993
Assessed childhood trauma experiences (sexual abuse, physical abuse, witnessed violence, early separation) and family environment characteristics of 17 depressed female patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and 19 without BPD. Significantly, more BPD subjects reported histories of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and witnessed violence. Sexual abuse emerged as only significant predictor of dimensional BPD score. (Author/NB)
