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

Synopsis

One of the more serious and hard-to-treat mental problems, borderline personality disorder (BPD) is also one of the most dangerous. Seventy-five percent of people with BPD will attempt suicide at some point, and ten percent ultimately take their own lives. Living with the symptoms of BPD is obviously a terrible burden for anyone, but receiving a BPD diagnosis and negotiating the necessary treatment can itself be a bewildering and painful process.This compassionate book offers people with BPD a detailed guide to the disorder and a point-by-point plan to the treatment and condition-management process. The book is organized as a series of answers to questions common to BPD sufferers: What is BPD? How long does it last? What other problems co-occur with BPD? Overviews of what we currently know about BPD make up the first section of the book. Later chapters cover several common treatment approaches to BPD: dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), mentalization-based therapy (MBT), and medical treatment using psychoactive drugs. In the last sections of the book, readers learn a range of day-to-day coping skills that can help moderate the symptoms of BPD.
