Mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Lehmkuhl.

Analytic therapy in old age is still the exception. This report from the vantage point of patients refutes the idea that older people are unalterably stuck in their ways. At the age of 69 Regina Alegiani decided to start analytic psychotherapy and found an analyst who was willing to treat her despite her age. In light of the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, she describes the most important phases in the therapy of this early-onset illness that had overshadowed her entire life. Her report describes the lines of communication and the relationship between the analyst and the patient. Regine Alegiani displays a high level of reflexion and a great talent for putting it into words.
