Overview

In Borderline Personality Disorder: A Therapist’s Guide to Taking Control, Freeman and Fusco offer the means by which clinicians can get a hold of BPD in the therapeutic situation and, most importantly, in their clients’ lives. Organized in chapters that correspond to each of the nine criteria for BPD the Therapist’s Guide is designed to aid the experienced therapist in performing the focused, structured work necessary with patients. This book lays out a constructive program for organizing effective therapy by moving through each criterion, examining it and whether it is manifested in clients’ life, and, then, providing critical, reflective, and calming strategies by which clients can begin to take control of their lives. The Therapist’s Guide provides the basic structure of the detailed therapeutic exercises that the Patient’s Guide establishes for the client’s use both in therapy and at home in between sessions.
