obstacles to therapeutic collaboration
Obstacles To Therapeutic Collaboration
  • Staff found it difficulttoequate her projection and splitting as acknowledgement of possible inner distress.
  • Nursing staff did not promote a ward environment in which negative feelings of staff could be discussed in a supportive and reflective manner.
malignant alienation
Malignant Alienation
  • “ A progressive detraction in the relationship with patient including loss of sympathy and support” which can lead to “impaired judgement in the nurse who selectively attends to the facts of the clinical situation in order to repudiate and devalue the patient.”

( Watts and Morgan 1994)

  • Appoint link nurse x4 to implement baulk of interventions.[Specialist team approach*]

Attributes of link nurses

“Be pragmatic rather than dogmatic”

(Shaw et al 1999)

“Retain the capacity to be steady, skilful and competent despite provoked anxiety and pressure to transgress”

(Bateman and Fonagy 1999)

  • Develop individualised care pathway with its empathises on collaboration over three distinct phases
  • Immediate
  • Transitional
  • Developmental [fig 1]
  • The aim of this is to provide more consistent care by minimising variations in practise
  • Prepare patient for general obs over a period of six weeks.
  • Encourage patient to write up a security plan and incorporate it into her care pathway.[Fig2]
  • Bring patient off constant obs in a staged manner.
  • Encourage staff to attend regular support groups.
  • Ensure that all interventions are delivered in a coherent and consistent manner.

  • What she could do to help herself.
  • What she thought others could do tohelp.
benefits of regular meetings
Benefits of Regular Meetings
  • These have helped staff to appreciate, bear and put into perspective manifestations of projection and splitting and view its meaning as possible representation of the patients inner process.
  • Reflective practise has been encouraged.
improvements in therapeutic relationship
Improvements in Therapeutic Relationship
  • Patient appeared better equipped with coping skills.(Distress tolerance)
  • Therapeutic alliance more robust.
  • Staff more attuned and empathically responsive to her emotional state.
  • “The pharmacological treatment of BPD remains limited in scope…..By and large the results can be described as a mild degree of symptom relief.”

(Paris 2005)

successful features
Successful Features
  • Link nurses have remained unchanged. (Constancy)
  • Care has remained co-ordinated and delivered consistently.
  • It is clear that limiting the people involved in care to those whose roles are clear reduces the chances of inconsistencyarising.
