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.

By doing so, life will become less difficult.

Accept the things you can not change, and learn to embrace your "fears". By doing so, life will become less difficult, and you will see that it is not as bad as you originally thought it would be.

This book is both informative.

This book is both informative and shows the many different ideas about BPD. I am glad I got it because the internet has a lot of false information. If you or someone you love has this I highly recommend it!

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.

Best book on BPD so far!

Having read/ listened to quite a few other books on BPD, this has been the most poignant. The author’s words coupled with the narrator’s compassionate tone help capture the range of emotions felt by those with BPD. This combined with the technical accuracy regarding BPD’s symptoms, effects, and treatment make “Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide” an excellent book. Helpful for those suffering from BPD, as well as people in relationship with them. Thanking the author for her writing and care.
