In our study we aim to confirm the existence of profiles introjective / anaclitic within the borderline range. Were administered to two groups of subjects (clinical vs control) the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis II Disorders (SCID II, First et al., 1997), the Depressive Experiences Questionnaire for DEQ-A Teen (Blatt et al. , 1992), the Child and Adolescent Perfectionism Scale (CAPS, Flett et al., 1991), the Youth Self Report (YSR, Achenbach, 2001).
