Unpaid Annotation
Complete therapist and patient guides for borderline personality disorder. FEW PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS carry the negative connotation accompanying borderline personality disorder (BPD). The most common element of BPD is an exquisite sensitivity to life events that may manifest in periodic loss of control. This loss of control may lead to actions that can be damaging to oneself and others. The authors have written companion volumes to help both people with BPD and their therapists take control of this disorder. Filled with practical strategies and the research and theory behind them, these books provide clinicians and patients with the necessary tools for working with this innovative program.
