This paper uses three theories of psychology to study the best treatment/therapy for a borderline personality case. The first part explores how Freudian psychology would interpret this individual's disorder as re-experiencing internalized trauma from the period of his or her youth. The second analysis is of cognitive theory, which is more interested in the treatment of the disorder than the understanding of it. The final analysis studies Jung's theories of the split-self.

From the Paper:

"Critical to Jung's theories as well is the idea that every human psyche experiences a period of breaks or separations. The animus and the anima, for instance, are the division between male and female soul that exists within all individuals. One facet of the animus or the anima may come to the forefront, depending on how society regards that person in terms of gender and how that person regards him or herself. However, all individuals are male and female, though to different degrees."
