Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a disorder that seriously affects the life of the person who suffers from it and causes harm to the person with BPD and to the people surrounding him. This paper's objective is to present the professional experience of psychologists graduated in Psychoanalysis in caring for patients with TPB, focusing: the main characteristics, the diagnostic process and the treatment of the disorder. Two psychologists graduated in Psychoanalysis took part in this research. It was observed that the professionals made the diagnosis during the treatment, because their main interest is in the way the patient functions. Moreover, the treatment is administered according to the feelings and thoughts the patient brings and the therapeutic relation with the analyst. We can conclude that the release of the information about BPD and its treatment are very important to clarify the population, the professionals and the students of this health area.
