Abstract

A major development in the field of psychotherapy research is the growing recognition of the need for evidence on the mechanisms of change in psychotherapy. The empirical evidence that psychotherapy has a positive and significant effect must be amplified with data on the mechanisms of action in the various psychotherapies. This special issue is devoted to the articulation of putative mechanisms of change in the psychotherapy of patients with borderline personality disorder by leading researchers in this field.
