Research suggests that the consideration of (meta-)cognitive biases may prove beneficial for the treatment of BPD, as dysfunctional thinking styles may play an important role in the development and maintenance of symptoms. Based on several well-replicated research findings including own studies, our working group developed the Metacognitive Training - Borderline (B-MCT). The objective of this low-threshold cognitive-behaviorally oriented group intervention is to raise the patients' awareness of dysfunctional thinking patterns and to help them reduce cognitive distortions. Hence, the B-MCT represents an add-on intervention for inpatient or outpatient treatment, which specifically targets these issues.
