To the Editor We thank Cristea and colleagues1 for their compelling review on psychotherapy for borderline personality disorder (BPD). The authors found that psychotherapies, especially dialectical behavior therapy and psychodynamic approaches, are effective for borderline symptoms and related problems, although the effects were small and inflated by risk of bias. Here, we point out some unrecognized limitations of their study.
