Abstract: Overgeneral memory (OGM), the tendency to retrieve categories of memories rather than single events, is a robust finding in (previously) depressed and traumatized patients. This chapter reviews the findings on OGM in relation to borderline personality disorder (BPD). Although depression and trauma are very common in BPD patients, OGM has not been robustly found in this population. Methodological issues however, may impede to unambiguously draw conclusions. They are listed. We further investigate to what extent the current findings on OGM in BPD are consistent with the prevailing theoretical models on autobiographical memory organisation. Finally, directions for model fine-tuning and future research are suggested.
