If you're struggling in a tumultuous relationship with someone with BPD, this is the book for you. Dr. Shari Manning helps you understand why your spouse, family member, or friend has such out-of-control emotions—and how to change the way you can respond.

Empathic, hopeful, and science based, this is the first book for family and friends grounded in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), the most effective treatment for BPD.

People with the borderline personality disorder (BPD) are often self-destructive and surrounded by chaos. This guide for spouses, family, and friends gives advice on surviving emotional crises, making decisions about hospitalization, and coping. Author Manning is a former trainer in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), one of the only evidence-based treatments for BPD. In addition to explaining the complex web of symptoms and causes of BPD, she introduces the same communication and validation skills that are taught to DBT therapists, demonstrated with many examples from the author's professional experience. A final chapter on getting help briefly reviews the four main therapies for BPD: DBT, mentalization-based therapy, schema-focused therapy, and transference-focused psychotherapy. Resource pages list therapy clinics, research centers, and advocacy and treatment organizations in the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia. Books and DVDs are also listed.
