Publisher's Summary

Is someone you love suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD)? Are you confused about what should be the right way to help them?

Do you want to know the ways to treat BPD and the strategies for supporting someone with BPD?

You are at the right place. Please keep reading.

Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness. It appears during adolescence or the early stages of adulthood. Emotional instability, a distorted self-image, impulsive behavior, and unstable relationships are all symptoms. Many individuals who have BPD have difficulty controlling their emotions. Emotional dysregulation is a key symptom of BPD, and it may explain other symptoms such as risky or impulsive behavior, unstable relationships, and stress-related cognitive abnormalities. Emotional instability is also a criterion for diagnosing BPD.

BPD may be diagnosed as early as 12 years old if symptoms persist for at least a year. The majority of diagnoses, however, are made in early adulthood or late adolescence. Before diagnosis, the most typical course of Borderline Personality Disorder is chronic instability in years of teenage and early adulthood, with episodes of severe emotional and impulsive responses leading to the recurrent need of emergency services at every crisis.

This book contains the following contents:

  • Meaning of Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Development and course of BPD
  • Emotion regulation in Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Struggles in relationships
  • How to improve social relations
  • Workplace and BPD
  • Understanding stigma when you have BPD
  • Meditation, a bonus
  • Some strategies for supporting someone with BPD
  • Splitting in borderline personality disorder
  • Treatments and therapies

If you want to know all that you need about BPD, its symptoms, causes, and treatments, you should wait no longer and get this book. It will help you better understand BPD and help your loved ones who are suffering from this disorder.

It is necessary to accompany your loved one to workshops or consultations with psychologists or psychiatrists. He/she should feel supported by you❤️❤️, giving him/her confidence, but without abusing it, you are a fundamental part of the treatment of your loved one.

The Best Book on the Subject!

If you are just starting out on learning about Borderline Personality Disorder, this is the best book. Dealing with the typical anger in BPD relationships is hard on everyone but fear not, this book is totally non judgmental and the anger is understood and a result of being in emotional pain.

It does a great job

It does a great job of explaining the disorder. The perspective of why someone with BPD does the illogical and self-defeating things they do, even when it seems like they really don't want to do those things, has been extremely helpful.

This book has change my life

This book has change my paradigm about people with BPD or similar problems. If you are like many others living with borderline personality disorder (BPD), you know what it's like to be overwhelmed by intense and fluctuating emotions; to have difficulty with relationships; and to constantly struggle with troubling thoughts and behaviors. BPD can be especially difficult to treat, though there are ways to gain control over your symptoms and live a happier, healthier life.
