Abstract

PURPOSE:

To review the available evidence-based literature on the components of brief inpatient psychiatric hospital admission as an intervention for patients with borderline personality disorder.

FINDINGS:

Five key components of brief admission as an intervention were identified: discussion of goals; organization of Brief Admission; clear admission procedure; specification of any other interventions during Brief Admission; and stipulation of conditions for premature (i.e., forced) discharge.
