Customer Review

on 9 August 2013
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.
