Abstract:Background. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a very common disorder with a high burden of disease that is characterized by an enduring instability regarding interpersonal relations, self-image, feelings and impulsivity. Self-criticism seems to play a prominent role in the disturbed emotion regulation of people suffering from BPD. The purpose of this study was to review systematically what is known about the role of self-criticism in the disturbed emotion regulation of people suffering from BPD. Method. A systematic literature study was conducted. The electronic databases ‘PsychINFO’, ‘Scopus’ and ‘Web of Science’ have been systematically queried with the keywords ‘self-criticism’, ‘borderline personality disorder’ and equivalents, both in English and in Dutch. Studies where included if both a degree of self-criticism and symptoms of BPD were measured in the study subjects. Results. After screening, a limited number of 18 studies remained, of which 11 contained subjects with a BPD diagnosis. The average age of the subjects was between 19 and 52, and 75% of subjects were female. A positive correlation was found in all studies where the correlation was measured, but in two studies the correlation was not significant. One study found a correlation between decrease in self-criticism and a decrease in BPD severity. Conclusion. Self-criticism appears to correlate positively with an increase in BPD symptoms and is increased in people suffering from BPD. A decrease in self-criticism seems to correlate with a decrease in BPD severity.
