Updated January 27, 2009

Definition: In psychology and psychiatry, the term “boundary” is used to refer to one’s sense of personal space and separation from other people. People with borderline personality disorder (BPD) have a difficult time establishing and maintaining their own personal boundaries and respecting others’ boundaries. Developing this skill is often a focus of BPD treatment.
