Abstract

This literature review aims to explore the contribution psychoanalytical theory has made to our understanding of personality disorder, with particular emphasis on theory, assessment and diagnosis. I begin with a review of how personality disorder is currently defined and diagnosed within the NHS and then give an account of the major theoretical contributions of both academic and clinical psychology to both personality and personality disorder. The review then explores what psychoanalytical theories offer to this knowledge base. I will focus on the major contributions of psychoanalytical theory to our understanding of the symptoms and aetiology of personality disorder and move on to how psychoanalysis has contributed to clinical assessment and diagnosis. I conclude the review with possible future empirical directions for psychoanalysis and personality disorder as indicated by the literature.
