Première phrase
THE CAUSES OF borderline disorder often vary in type and degree from one person to another, so it makes sense that the symptoms also vary considerably in type and severity. Lire la première page

Excellent overall broad reference and resource written from compassionate place 8 août 2006
Par Patrick D. Goonan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent overall resource for BPD. It covers the history, causes and course of the disorder as well as the most common treatments both pharmacologically and therapeutically.

The scope of the book is very broad and includes information for family members, lots of additional resources, co-occurring disorders and how this problem shows up in children.

If you have a scientific bent, you will benefit a lot from the chapter on BPD and the brain. There is a lot of detail on the specific neural pathways involved in impulsive behavior, memory impairment, etc. This information is nicely summarized in easy to understand diagrams and there is a simplified bottom line explanation at the end of the chapter. This section is well explained and anyone should be able to understand it, even people intimidated by scientific explanations.

The overall tone of the book is compassionate and hopeful. The author had a sister who had this order and a lot of his motivation for writing it comes from this space of caring and wanting to share both his experience and knowledge. Being a psychiatrist, he dovetails deep knowledge with understanding and compassion.

As you may know, BPD is often misdiagnosed and this book helps differentiate multiple things that may be going on and explains how to get clear on whether or not BPD is really something that is going on. I think this is a very important section and it provides enough detail to be useful, but in general he keeps his explanations of other disorders short and to the point.

The discussion of psychotherapies is excellent and collected into an excellent summary of which ones are best and the indication for when to use them. There is a misconception that the prognosis for Borderline Disorder is not very good among many people, this is dispelled in this book and the supporting arguments for this conclusion are good.

An added bonus is current research needs and directions. If you have BPD, you will be very interested in knowing where this area is headed and hearing about the cutting edge of today's research.

I think the book could have benefited from better organization, design and more careful editing. However, the content is excellent and there is a lot of useful information in a relatively small space. This book is a one-stop resource and a nice compliment to other books that focus on one particular dimension of this issue. The shortcoming in how the information is organized and presented is my only reason for giving it a four rating, the content is excellent and it's a fairly easy read for most people.

I have a good background in psychology and also in physiology and biochemistry. At one time, I did drug research and currently I work in the psychology field. I have read a number of books on this topic and this is one of the best.

BPD Truly "Demystified" 2 septembre 2004
Par Barbara Hamon - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Thank God for Dr. Friedel's compassionate, informational, and helpful book. Finally a book to replace "I Hate You..." which is outdated. I suffer from BPD and am just now coming to terms with the illness. I am a mental health professional who has been used to all the "inside" jokes about BPD. I have been terrified of the diagnosis but can no longer reject it. This book has taught me that I am not alone, and that I am not a big freak. Everything I experience (and that those in my life experience with me) is real. It is full of information about treatment and is also full of acceptance and hope. Of any book that I would recommend for both professionals and persons with BPD, THIS would be the one!!!!

Excellent Guide to Understanding BDP 30 octobre 2005
Par Tulip - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is thorough, comprehensive and very INSIGHTFUL in its description of Borderline Personality Disorder, and offers detailed lists of available treatments, medications and resources to help patients and their families deal with this desease. I know it because I suffer from BPD and Dr. Friedel describes me to a T... I am the anxious-fearful BPD sufferer with a dose of depression... I was pleasantly surprised to find a clinician who finally gets what I think and feel, something that is not very common.

Before reading this book, I had been told I was suffering from BPD, but I really did not understand what BPD was, even while attending therapy. After reading this book, I finally believe I suffer from this disorder, and I am more informed about what kind of therapist and treatment I want and deserve.

Mr. Friedel is neither reproachful nor punishing to those suffering from BDP, something that I highly appreciate. He is a flash of fresh air among the psychiatrists and psychologists I have known, who somehow believed I did not have a real problem with my emotions and myself, and therefore believed, I could completely control my actions regardless of the level of suffering I was in... (A psychiatrist after a crisis took me aside and told me he would restrain me with a force jacket if I continued asking him questions; and I was supended from therapy, of all things, at a hospital treatment program after an on-site self-destructive incident without a discussion of the reasons I was hurting myself... that goes far enough to show that patients NEED to be discriminat about who they choose as a therapist, and Dr. Friedel points this out: not all therapists are willing nor able to treat BPD patients.)

Dr. Robert O. Friedel REALLY knows what he is talking about, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about this poorly understood disorder.

Perfect Book for Borderline Personality Disorder 7 janvier 2008
Par L. Schmitz - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I was diagnosed with Bi-Polar II and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). This past September. Not only did I not understand this disease, but I didn't understand how or where I got it from. I think I have probably orderdered every book on Amazon relating to BPD. All of them seemed to be a blame game. Feeling sorry for the spouse and family and those close to the person with BPD. The books that tried to explain it to the borderline were useless, There wasn't a whole lot of explaining of what the disease really was and what to do about it. I was lucky, I had a mental and physical breakdown. They did a Neuropyscholical Evaluation on me and that is how scientifically, came to the conclusion and diagnosis of BPD. It's a very difficult disease to diagnose because there are often underlying other issues that go along with it, ADHD, Bi-Polar, Depression, Anxiety etc... This book was not a cry baby book. It gives straight medical facts and tells you how to get help and the right people to get it from. It also goes into genetic factors and medications used to help BPD. Since I have been on the right medication (which is a lot of mix and match to find the meds and dosage that is right for you). It can be frustrating, but don't give up! Your Psychologist will find the right meds after he diagnoses you properly. Thaerapy is also crucial. It teaches people how to function in a strange world that we don't understand. I recommend it to anyone close to you also, so they can get a better understanding about what our inside lonely world feels like. Good Luck!
