Product Description

Review

"The Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide" is exactly what its title suggests. Through the use of many rich clinical examples and exacting and intriguing metaphors, Chapman and Gratz take us through the diagnosis and probable causes of BPD, some of the myths about BPD, and possible explanations of the problems that often accompany BPD. They review both psychological and medication treatments and end up with very practical advice on how to deal with suicidal thoughts as well as with situations when control over one's emotions seems tenuous at best. Clearly written and easily read, this book truly is a practical everyday guide not only to surviving but to growing healthier while struggling with BPD. Kenneth R Silk, MD, professor of psychiatry and director of the Personality Disorders Program at the University of Michigan Medical School and Health System"

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book if you have BPD or if someone you care about does. It is written in accessible language. The authors use a collaborative, supportive tone. There is so much misinformation about BPD and this book corrects a lot of the myths. It talks about people recovering from BPD and what is likely to change in recovery. It offers some concrete ways of coping and suggestions for getting treatment.

This book covers everything about BPD - what it is, how long it lasts, how it is treated, its history and causes. Importantly it also includes several chapters of tips for helping yourself through rough days, as well as one devoted to a promising new therapy called mentalization-based treatment, with an explanation of its differences and similarities to DBT.

I highly recommend both this book and Friedel's "BPD Demystified," for anyone who's life has been touched by the disorder. Friedel's book offers a thorough and compassionate discussion of BPD which calms the fears of the newly diagnosed, and the Survival Guide covers the two most promising treatments in more detail and provides many helpful tips. Both have helped me immensely.

I found this book to be extremely informing and very easy to access. It was heavy in facts but not heavy in technical terminology so it was very easy to read and comprehend.
