Practical Strategies for Living With Someone Who Has Borderline Personality Disorder
Randi Kreger with James Paul Shirley, LMSW
The workbook can be used by itself, or as an accompaniment to the book. A practical guide to successfully navigating life with someone with Bipolar Disorder, it's chock full of worksheets, checklists, and exercises to help them apply what they've learned to their own relationship. It includes a form to help to fill in when looking for a clinician, a list of phrases to use, and a glossary of BPD-related terms. The book is easy to read and right to the point.
Kreger draws on new research to provide advice for navigating life with someone who has borderline personality disorder. Step-by-step suggestions--many from users of the author's comprehensive Web site--help readers set and enforce personal limits, communicate clearly, cope with put-downs and rage, and make realistic decisions.
