This paper reports on the literature published on staff attitudes towards the borderline personality disorder CSPO) diagnosis over time, and research on training programmes to address attitudes towards this client group. Following a computerised literature search, ten articles were identified on staff attitudes towards SPD, with four identified on training programmes to address such attitudes. Review of the literature revealed a focus on nurses' attitudes, with relatively consistent negative staff attitudes found towards BPD. Findings suggested this was generally due to lack of understanding of the client group, with staff indicating a need for more training/education. Training programmes produced promising results in improving staff attitudes towards BPD, but these improvements were not well maintained over time. Future research should focus on what makes this client group more challenging than others, and also the perspectives of other mental health professionals. Further research is also required on the long-term effectiveness of training programmes on BPD.
