Rethinking abuse in Borderline Personality Disorder: the case of verbal interaction across the lifespan. This study focuses on the relationship between verbal abuse and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), marked in literature only by some authors. The clinical history of an adult female patient diagnosed with BPD was examined to identify the presence of this type of maltreatment across her lifespan. A multi-instrumental as-sessment was carried out and verbal abuse in the parental communications was evaluat-ed through a newly developed questionnaire. Results show the presence of verbal abuse, perpetrated by both the parental figures: the patient’s mother, overinvolved in a symbi-otic bond with her daughter, tends to humiliate and to blame her, while her father, com-pletely emotionally absent, expresses disapproval or mainly communicates indifference and rejection. However, further confirmatory studies are required.
