Overview

Borderline Personality Disorder and Adolescents offers parents, caregivers, and adolescents themselves a complete understanding of this complex and tough-to-treat disorder. It thoroughly explains what it is and what a patientÆs treatment options are.

Author Blaise A. Aguirre, M.D., is one of the foremost experts in the field and was named head of the Adolescent Dialectic Behavior Therapy Treatment Center at McLean Hospital, one of the most prestigious psychiatric hospitals in the nation and a teaching facility for Harvard Medical School. Dr. Aguirre describes recent advances in treatments and brings into focus what we do and donÆt know about this condition. He explains the most advanced techniques available, including the revolutionary new treatment called dialectic behavior therapy.

Readers will learn the differences between BPD and other adolescent psychiatric diagnoses; treatment options (e.g., medication and therapy); how to choose the right therapist; how to determine when inpatient treatment is necessary; how to enforce boundaries; how to take care of and protect yourself; and practical techniques for effective communication with those who have BPD.

I am only 60 pages into this book, but being the father of a teen with Borderline traits, it is really helpful. There are so few resources for adolescents with BPD traits. Thanks!
