Introducing a breakthrough, integrative approach to managing your borderline personality disorder (BPD). If you’ve been diagnosed with BPD you may feel a number of emotions – including shock, shame, sadness, abandonment, emptiness, or even anger. Even worse, you may be tempted to research your diagnosis online, only to find doomsday scenarios and terrible prognoses everywhere you click. Take a deep breath. You can get through this – and this workbook will help guide you. Despite what you may have read or been told, BPD is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Like many mental health issues, it manifests on a continuum and while some people may experience extreme symptoms and consequences on one end, others may be less affected on the other. What do you all have in common? You likely experience difficulty balancing your emotions, thoughts and behaviours that disrupt how you see yourself and the success you have in relationships. And you may even have trouble seeing yourself clearly – continuously switching from the hero to the villain of the story you’ve written about your life. So, how can you make sense of it all and start on the road to healing? Rather than utilizing a one-size-fits-all treatment, this ground-breaking and comprehensive workbook meets you where you are on your therapeutic journey and provides an integrative approach to treating BPD drawing on evidence-based dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy. With this compassionate workbook, you’ll gain a greater understanding of your BPD, uncover your own emotional triggers and discover your own personal motivators for positive change. Your BPD has determined how you see and live your life but it doesn’t have to define you forever. With this workbook as your guide, you’ll be ready to face your diagnosis head-on, and take those important first steps toward lasting wellness.
