Objective: The literature on countertransference reactions evoked by patients with personality disorders is mainly anecdotal.The main aim of this project was to make a review of empirical studies that have examined the relationship between personality disorders and countertransference reactions. First of all, I wanted to examine if the empirical studies confirms clinical narratives on a strong relationship between countertransference reactions and personality disorders. Methods: I conducted searches on different databases such as; Pubmed, Embase, Psyc info and Cochrane library by using words like; countertransference reactions, personality disorders, axis II, empirical studies. These words were used separately and in combination. The references in actual mansuscripts were examined to see if there were possible to find other studies. Furthermore, I searched internett (e.g.Google) and read the most actual books about the subject. Results: The studies showed that axis II disorders to some extent illicit more countertransference reactions among therapists than axis I disorders. Moreover, the different axis II disorders seems to evoke different countertransference feelings among therapists. Conclusions: The different empirical studies to some extent seems to support the clinical literature. However, in spite of the fact that there exists a lot of clinical studies about countertransference reactions and personality disorders, there are few empirical studies that have examined countertransference reactions toward patients with differentpersonality disorders.
