Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT) and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) are among a small number of psychotherapy approaches offering specific methods for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). They share a number of features, notably both seek to integrate ideas and methods from psychoanalysis and cognitive psychology, pay attention to early attachment experiences and see harsh and inconsistent care, in combination with biological vulnerability, as playing an important part in the genesis of BPD offer treatment based on a developmental understanding of BPD, taking account of recent developments in observational research seek to provide therapy appropriate for use in the public service. These similarities, however, conceal a number of differences in underlying assumptions and emphases and are linked with contrasting therapeutic techniques. In this paper we present a discussion of key features of our models of normal and pathological development and a consideration of the conceptual underpinnings and of how far they are compatible with what is reliably known in the general field of psychology and how far it offers a model accessible to patients and clinician. Where our views diverge significantly, the reader will have some of the evidence on which to make a personal choice.
