Overview

Over the past two decades considerable progress has been made in developing specialist psychosocial treatments for borderline personality disorder (BPD), yet the majority of people with BPD receive treatment within generalist mental health services, rather than specialist treatment centres.

This is a book for general mental health professionals who treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It offers practical guidance on how to help people with BPD with advice based on research evidence. After a discussion of the symptoms of BPD, the authors review all the generalist treatment interventions that have resulted in good outcomes in randomised controlled trials, when compared with specialist treatments, and summarise the effective components of these interventions. The
treatment strategies are organised into a structured approach called Structured Clinical Management (SCM), which can be delivered by general mental health professionals without extensive additional training.

The heart of the book outlines the principles underpinning SCM and offers a step-by-step guide to the clinical intervention. Practitioners can learn the interventions easily and develop more confidence in treating people with BPD. In addition, a chapter is devoted to how to help families - an issue commonly neglected when treating patients with BPD. Finally the authors discuss the top 10 strategies for delivering treatment and outline how the general mental health clinician can deliver these
strategies competently.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book presents a fairly short but effective treatment guideline for borderline personality disorder. It is definitely a top-down recommendation for how to structure the treatment, what goals are important, how to deal with crisis, etc. I would recommend it. --Doody's Review Service

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brett C. Plyler, M.D.(Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description: Based on an approach called structured clinical management, this book is a guide to treating patients with borderline personality disorder.
Purpose: The purpose is to offer practical guidance on how to help people with this disorder based on research evidence.
Audience: The audience is general mental health professionals who treat people with borderline personality disorder.
Features: An analysis of borderline personality disorder and its major characteristics begins the book, which then considers the different modalities available for treatment, focusing on structured clinical management developed by one of the authors. The majority of the chapters are devoted to aspects of structured clinical management: general strategies, core strategies, team approach, inpatient, and prescribing. Chapters begin with nice summaries and include inset boxes, called Consumer Comments, which contain descriptions of patients' feelings about their illness and treatment, providing a more realistic and less dry tone to the book. One of the last chapters is devoted to family and friends of the patient, a good addition and not something that is usually included. The final chapter explores dialectical behavior therapy and mentalization therapy as further resources.
Assessment: This book presents a fairly short but effective treatment guideline for borderline personality disorder. It is definitely a top-down recommendation for how to structure the treatment, what goals are important, how to deal with crisis, etc. It is not a detail-oriented, how-to therapy manual nor is it intended to be. The last chapter focuses on some more detailed therapeutic interventions that evidence has shown to be effective. The authors' goal is an important one. Since the majority of these patients are treated by general mental health professionals, how should their treatment be organized? How does the team function? When should inpatient be considered? All of these types of questions and answers are examined. It is a good place to start for any mental health professional who treats these patients and I would recommend it.
