Publisher's Summary

Primarily caused by trauma in childhood, symptoms of borderline personality disorder most frequently show up in teenage years and early adulthood.

Do you recognize problems such as:

  • Fear of abandonment?
  • Erratic behavior?
  • Poor self-image?
  • Disproportionate emotional response?
  • Self-harm?

Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide for You and Your Relationship educates you on the causes and conditions of BPD while providing a variety of powerful strategies and new techniques you or your loved one can put to use to start feeling better immediately. Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) has a 77 percent success rate in the first year, eliminating the behaviors that classify BPD.

Here is just a small fraction of what you will discover:

  • Ways to support someone suffering from BPD while also maintaining healthy boundaries of acceptable behavior 
  • BPD symptoms require immediate attention and how to recognize them
  • The long-term fix to stop the overwhelming nature of intensive feeling and your most challenging triggers
  • Steps to avoid the common pitfall of jumping to conclusions and never think “how did this happen?” again
  • The most essential techniques to live a healthy romantic relationship
  • Practical DBT strategies and techniques for quick relief in less than 60 minutes
  • Alternative treatment modalities for BPD you haven´t heard of 
  • Ways to customize your treatment method based on your dominant symptoms and personality
  • And much more.

Many people suffering from BPD hesitate to try available treatments because the problem can be painful to face. They may also resist because they tried treatment unsuccessfully in the past. The good news about treatment options for BPD is that they are solution-oriented. You can quickly determine if one works or not and do it without having to dredge up a lot of past details.

If you want immediate relief from your BPD symptoms, scroll up and click the “buy now” button.

Helpful/Insightful

The content was insightful, making it easier to finish. Provided a lot of tips for the person with BPD in addition to people who live/know someone with BPD, & how to support them in a healthy manner. The only downside of this book was the narrator, her voice was great-but she sounded as if she was getting emotional or choked up on and off which was quite bothersome. Other than that minor thing, I would recommend this book if you have BPD or know/with someone that has BPD.

A little intimidating

This helped me understand better; but, I didn't like that the person with BPD is said to be incompetent.
Narration was a little bit grating.

Great Content Performed Poorly

The number of sentences misread for lack of comprehension of the reader quickly goes from frustrating to intolerable. Add in mispronunciation and one wonders who is responsible for the entire production. But the content is good. But the book instead.

Why won't life work no matter how hard I try?

Is this you? Then you need this.
Very informative and a quick listen. Really broke things down for me that I had been treacherously wondering about myself for my entire life. I have been in and out of very useful therapy for 20 years and never learned these things about myself. And I have been taking a very close look lol This book explained things to me that other people cannot see,, since we learn to cope and "fit in" to society, the majority and severity of our pain is hidden away, painfully inside. This book broke me down, so be ready to learn and accept some heavy truths about yourself and the way you operate. But, I needed this book to help me understand why I do what I do, or.. have done what I've done, and to make the progress I am working on in my life. I now have answers that I have been searching for every single day of my life. I can't stress that part enough!! I am planning to listen to it again since it has so much new information for me. I also see many more books on the topic in my future lol That's a good thing though. I highly recommend this audiobook!! (sped up just the tiniest bit :)

Good just beware of opinions

This books info helps map out symptoms. It was however jarring to hear words like “it will be hard.” Ouch. What if we think different like “it will be a new skill” , exciting new option” “takes work but we are certainly capable”. Stick with it!

Some Good Information If YOU Can Handle The Reader

The book was good in that it offered many strategies for both members in a relationship. It was a bit repetitive. This could be perceived as good in that the reader/listener hears information more than once. Some suggestions for handling stress are outdated and have been proven as not helpful and anchoring an individual to unhealthy strategies. I was very surprised to hear some of these. WAY OFF!!!

Overall, I would recommend this book. I wrote Audible regarding the amateur read!!! It really got in the way as she constantly stumbles and over announounciate the ends of certain wards.. I do not pay for schlock! This is not the first time I had trouble with an Audio Book on Audible. I requested they up their standards.

wonderful listen

This was extremely helpful. I like the way things were explained, without using big medical terms. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has a friend or family member with any mood disorders let alone BPD.

The author explains

The author explains what we now know about the brain basis of emotional intelligence, in clear and simple terms. The book covers different sections of the brain that are affected by stress, inflictive emotions and how practicing mindfulness and relaxation techniques can help. This is a very insightful and short overview of the subject of emotional intelligence!

Helped in the moment when needed

Having felt reasonably safe for many years I experienced a few events which triggered me significantly. This book help me to feel a bit more grounded as it talks about various ideas and outlines the pertinent issues of this disorder. It won’t provide any specific therapy for structured guidance but it will help you to understand better the places you are in. Of course you need to seek professional help but this was a good emergency listen to help me push through some of the issues I was facing in the moment.

A good book to start with

It gives a new perspective on people with addictive problems and other behavior problems. I had not read much on personality disorders before and was skeptical about these diagnoses, but sometimes the behaviors exhibited by people were otherwise unexplainable, or they would not remember what they had done or said. Many people do not respond to typical anti-depressant therapy. A good book to start with.

This is great to listen to as it uncovers secrets in creating and maintaining long-lasting relationships be it in business or in other kinds of relations. It may be quite a brief discussion, but it has been very substantial.

The lessons are simple but profound.

The lessons are simple but profound. The author has provided a subtle way of stating the importance of emotional intelligence, especially in our work zone. He has simplified them making it easier for us listeners to comprehend them easily.
