This paper proposes a review of the clinical case of a borderline patient from the Jungian analytical psychology point of view,with references to other psychodynamic models. The severe symptoms of the patient, registered in the most critical moments as pathological dissociation, impulsive behavior and acting out, seem to represent a psychic short circuit, a defense against repeated and devastating traumatic states, identifiable as a psychological and psychosomatic condition: this is characterized by an incapability (or incapacity) to be aware of fear and pain, which are denied, when the mechanism that controls,perceives and regulates them fails repeatedly, also at the transgenerational level. The therapeutic relationship provides an important opportunity to change the expression of suffering from archetypal, explosive and undifferentiated affection into feelings, thus communicating the inner states of oneself to others and favouring a new dimension of interior change and development.
Keywords: Borderline; Cumulative Trauma; Complex; Mother; Suicide; Dissociation.
