I read an article today that I thought was really interesting. It suggests two new diagnostic categories to capture the characteristics often displayed by survivors of chronic childhood traumatisation that is currently (often inadequately) described as comorbid PTSD and BPD. It hasn't really got an abstract and I can't post a link because you have to pay to view it, but I thought I'd post the details for anyone who might be interested and who has access to it through a university library or something. I thought it was really worth the read. :)
