Abstract

Background: Borderline personality disorder is characterised by a pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image, affects and marked impulsivity.

Objective: The objective is to define the central concept of “facilitation of self-empowerment ”.

Method: Analysis and synthesis reasoning methods as indicated by Walker and Avant (2011) were used to define the central concept.

Results: A definition of the concept “facilitation of self-empowerment” was formulated from the dictionary and subject definitions.

Conclusion: The central concept is important for developing a model as a frame of reference to assist psychiatric nurse practitioners in facilitating the mental health of women living with borderline personality disorder.
