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.

There is a lot of information

There is a lot of information online however most of it is on the line of "run from this person as fast as you can" variety. Think of this book as an operating manual for the person you love and it really does help you understand the mechanics of the challenges of living with someone with BPD.

I recommend reading it.

If your loved one had bpd or eupd or even an eating disorder you probably feel pretty helpless, even desperate. This book helped me hugely. I recommend reading it.
