The authoress while presenting psychological mechanisms which underlie borderline pathology (e.g. splitting, fear of boundary loss, sense of emptiness) considers their impact on the sense of body. The proposed hypothesis is that disturbances in one's sens of body such as: change in self-bounadary perception. sense of inner emptiness, dissociation experiences, altered perception and loss of control of bodily states and negative attitude towards one's body may contribute to undertake self-destructive acts.
