Product Description

Review

A 350-word review is not enough to do this book justice. Written by two psychiatrists, one with a psychodynamic and the other a behavioural orientation, the book succeeds in outlining different psychological and pharmacological approaches to the treatment of borderline personality disorder in a harmonius and enlightened way.,, This book is highly recommended and I consider the authors to have achieved what they set out to do: instill hope in all of us working with patients with borderline personality disorder and, in so doing, instil hope in patients themselves. (Psychiatric Bulletin)

This book presents a fairly short but effective treatment guideline for borderline personality disorder. It is definitely a top-down recommendation for how to structure the treatment, what goals are important, how to deal with crisis, etc. (Breet C. Plyler, MD, Doody's Notes)

I have just now come across your book, and it is absolutely excellent! There is a real need to move BPD treatment from specialty clinics to more general care If we give people the impression that the only treatment is DBT or MBT, we will deny them the likelihood of doing well with something more practical that still applies the right principles, reserving more resource-intensive models for the sickest patients. Congratulations! (Dr Joel Paris, McGill University, Canada)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Fenella Lemonsky on 9 Aug. 2013
Format: Paperback
Borderline Personality Disorder: An evidence-based guide for generalist mental health professionalsis another special yet approachable guide to how to work with a group of patients most found difficult before Bateman, Kravitz and other world experts came along and showed how.
What is superb about this textbook of management is that it assumes little and teaches a lot. The reading is a delight as it is not overly technical nor is it medicalised or have too much therapy jargon. It is what is says on the tin. Since 2009 we have had the NICE guidelines amongst other evidence to influence the management of this group of people affected by such despair at times the system struggles to know how to help. In this well designed book the two authors both super specialists in their own right as psychiatrists and psychotherapists, Bateman a psychoanalyst/psychoanalytic and founder of Mentalization (Jointly with Peter Fonagy), therapist and Professor of Psychiatry who is much loved by his staff, colleagues and patients for his warm compassionate and skilled approach and Kravitz from New Zealand a highly skilled therapist in DBT. A good resource section at the back on specific approaches to crisis management amongst other hard to reach situations. MIndfulness, DBT, MBT and Supportive Structured Clinical Management are all covered well. I was fortunate to be bought a copy however it is well worth buying. You will refer to it for years to come until the next clinical manual is published.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An up-to-date book that comes from professionals in the field that seem to have a very positive outlook on the disorder than is very heavily stigmatized.

Great practical overview of secondary care for BPD, and area which cries out for clarity and structural alignment where possible.
