HENRIQUES-CALADO, Joana  and  DUARTE-SILVA, Maria Eugénia. An exploratory review on dementia and schizophrenia: overlaps, differences and psychodynamic personality. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2016, vol.28, n.2, pp. 173-182. ISSN 0103-5665.

This study sets out to review some of the overlaps and differences in dementia and schizophrenia, and to analyze the relationship between a specific personality structure and diagnosis. The anxiety of abandonment and the anaclitic object relationship are related to dementia, while the anxiety of fragmentation and fusional object relationship are associated with schizophrenia. On a continuum, the borderline structure appears associated with dementia and the psychotic structure with schizophrenia.

Keywords : dementia; schizophrenia; personality; psychodynamic; psychopathology.
