  • Abstract  

    Borderline Personality Disorder is a heterogeneous disorder involving mood dysregulation, impulse control, interpersonal relationships and identity. The feature of identity confusion can become complicated in a society with multiple ethnoreligious backgrounds, including Malaysia. This case report describes a 24-year-old Malay Muslim lady with Borderline Personality Disorder and persistent depressive disorder who struggled with her identity due to the mixed ethnicity of her parenthood. The patient achieved full functional recovery after undergoing 15 sessions of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, which helped her to resolve her identity confusion. The dynamic of identity disturbances was discussed from the perspective of psychodynamic interpretation.
