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.

So it is the perfect complete book thats on the market.
