BPD is commonly associated with impulsivity, distorted body image and unstable relationships. This study aims at introducing Dance Movement Therapy as a therapeutic intervention that re-establishes body and mind structure for BPD patients, the sample consists of 12 in-patients (girls only) with age range between 20- 35 years old, DMT sessions were introduced to them for about 5 months, a session per week, the session lasts for 30-45 mins. Different materials were used to reclaim relational boundaries. The setting was challenging for both the patients and facilitator. The study concluded that DMT intervention improves body image and a significant progress has been noticed as five patients have significantly improved and discharged from the hospital.
