Abstract

The aims of the present study was (a) to examine the relationship between parental bonding and various personality disorders, when the effect of a lifetime depressive disorder was statistically controlled for, and (b) to examine the relationship between parental bonding and a lifetime depressive disorder when the effects of various personality disorders were accounted for. The study included 135 psychiatric outpatients and 41 healthy controls. The patients were diagnosed according to DSM-III-R axis I and axis II. Results indicated that obsessive-compulsive personality disorder was associated with reports of lower levels of paternal care and higher levels of paternal overprotection, while cluster B personality disorder was associated with reports of high parental overprotection. Avoidant, dependent, and cluster A personality disorders were not associated with abnormal parental bonding. Lifetime depressive disorders were associated with reports of low maternal care and high maternal overprotection when the effect of a personality disorder was accounted for.
