Book Description

14 July 2004 1569244561 978-1569244562
Over six million Americans suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), a chronic, disabling psychiatric condition that causes extreme instability in their emotional lives, behavior, and self-image, and severely impacts their family and friends. In Borderline Personality Disorder Demystified, Dr. Robert Friedel, a leading expert in BPD and a pioneer in its treatment, has turned his vast personal experience into a useful and supportive guide for everyone living with and seeking to understand this condition. Friedel helps readers grasp the etiology of Borderline Personality Disorder, the course it takes, the difficulties in diagnosing it, the types of treatment available, strategies for coping, and much more. Borderline Personality Disorder Demystified is an invaluable resource for everyone diagnosed with BPD, those who think they might have the illness, and friends and family who love and support them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough, accessible, excellent! 5 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
If you have bpd, you must buy this book. Written by someone who really has been there and seen it all, this is a wonderful, compassionate and extremely thorough account of all aspects of the disorder. As someone with severe bpd, I have laughed and cried my way through these pages ;). It takes you through diagnosis, causes, historical thinking, case studies, scientific background, treatments and offers great advice for individuals and their families. I cannot recommend this book enough, almost certainly all you will need to understand bpd and realise you can live with it successfully!

This book did contain some useful information, but, as a sufferer it also made me feel like a bit of a loser.

This book is great, really informative. Read the introduction as the author explains the use of the book. It can be read cover-to-cover, or just dipped into for advice & information. Really helpful when struggling.
