Abstract:The purpose of the study was to identify the factors behind workplace problems of people with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and to seek methods of employment support that would lead them to attain their goals. Results found that impulsivity was an important predictor of vocational functioning of BPD. Another factor is that their motivation to work passionately can be a strength. Though, the stigma still exists that they have little chance of employment. The lack of collaboration between mental health and vocational rehabilitation was discussed.
