    <mods:abstract>Introduction: Short-term partial hospitalization has not yet been assessed in the
        literature as treatment for acute symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). The aim
        of the current study is to assess the effectiveness of the Rhode Island Hospital adult
        partial program in reducing pathology associated with BPD, and furthermore to determine
        demographic and diagnostic correlates of treatment success. Methods: 88 patients diagnosed
        with BPD completed daily self-report questionnaires assessing present symptoms.
        Intake-to-discharge score differences were determined and analyzed across demographic
        characteristics and comorbid diagnoses. Results: The two factors that consistently predicted
        treatment outcomes in a regression model were education and the number of days no-showed.
        Those with higher education tended exhibit greater improvement, and those who no-showed more
        often tended to show less improvement despite the fact the number of cancellations had no
        effect on treatment outcomes. Discussion: The RIH adult partial program is very effective at
        reducing acute symptoms associated with BPD. The data suggests that no-shows are strongly
        related with a reduction in treatment effectiveness, to the extent that personal factors
        predict both inclination to no-show and less adherence to treatment. Higher education may
        improve outcomes in an ACT-based program because of its association with greater insight,
        which helps patients to internalize cognitively-oriented psychotherapy. Patients with less
        education and lower insight may fare better in a program that uses more
        behaviorally-oriented therapy.</mods:abstract>
