Abstract

This paper demonstrates the particular functions of noise communication in a borderline child and family. Analysis shows noise to have a primary role for the individuals and the family in protecting self, promoting attachment, defending against the experience of emptiness and depletion and communicating lack of attunement. Treatment objectives were to foster the development of a more differentiated and cohesive self for the individuals and the family.
