Overview

The symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD) include severe mood shifts, unfounded accusations and wildly inappropriate displays of anger, a range of self-destructive behaviors, and frantic efforts to avoid abandonment.

A practical guide to successfully navigating life with someone with BPD, it’s chock full of worksheets, checklists, and exercises to help them apply what they’ve learned to their own relationship. It includes a form to help to fill in when looking for a clinician, a list of phrases to use, and a glossary of BPD-related terms. The book is easy to read and right to the point.

My husband had been diagnosed w/ BPD several years ago and was prescribed medications. No therapy or family therapy was prescribed. Reading this workbook, and doing some of the exercises has opened my eyes to what he goes through, and has helped me to stop blaming myself for his failings. I now am setting boundaries and hope I am on the road to recovering my own sense of well being. Perhaps, when he is ready, I will then be able to help him.

This book provides concrete, clearly written help for those dealing with a person who has or exhibits the characteristics of Borderline Personality Disorder in their lives. My discovery of this book was truly a God send!

This book opened my eyes to things that were giong on that I hadn't even noticed. At first I wasn't going to read the book, but once I started reading the introduction I was hooked. There was someone else out there who had gone through the same things I had. This book is written for someone with a family member or a significant other with BPD, and is a good introduction to BPD.

I had a very troubled marriage and was in marrage consuling for three and a half years. My wife was diagnosed with BPD during this time. I found this book looking for help in a bookstore"s psychology section. I cannot begin to tell you how much this book helped me survive our devorce.. It kept a blood bath from happening. It prevented necessary tarma hurting out kids. None ot that would have happened without the book. From reading the effect Boarderlines have on childred I found the narrative of my childhood. If my father had this book when I was a kid I would not have the probless I have. Please buy it and use it to protect your children. I cannot tell you how important that is.

This is a very dangerous book. The main author is not a professional and has inaccurate information but more importantly some truly damaging recommendations. Borderline Personality Disorder is a very serious diagnosis that should be made by a professional ONLY! Anyone reading this book should be extremely careful before relying on this book and, in my opinion, should never be dishonest with anyone, including someone you believe has Borderline Personality Disorder. I would NOT recommend this book.
