Descriptions du produit


Persons with borderline personality disorder (BPD) have often been abused physically, psychologically, or sexually; most are women. Moskovitz describes variations of the condition and how it affects patient, family, and friends. The sufferer may experience guilt, self-hate, suicide, self-mutilation, and other symptoms and signs, and Moskovitz provides several patient histories to bring BPD to life. No case is more considerable than that of Sara, which Moskovitz parcels out in segments at the ends of chapters--a tactic that first seems artificial and confusing but cumulatively makes a greater impression than it would if presented whole. Moskovitz is especially adept with analogies, using everyday situations to clarify his points rather than just adorn the text. He imparts that while there is no drug just for BPD, some drugs help with specific symptoms, and he dispenses practical advice to family and professionals as well as patients. William Beatty

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic, Gentle, Caring, and Informative 13 mai 2001

I am the webowner of "Borderline Personality Disorder Today".

Finally I got a copy of Dr. Moskovitz's book "Lost in the Mirror," I sat down and cried shortly into the first chapter. It was the very first time that someone understood me and not only that, it was as if the author had his arm around me through the entire book.
Lost in the Mirror is so beautifully and gently written and it was also the first time that I realized that I was not miserable because I was a bad person which is what I had always thought.
The magic of "Lost in the Mirror" is the mixture of the tremendous clinical experience and knowledge the author has (he is up to date with the research), with his very gentle, warm and caring personality.
I have heard from many family members how helpful this book has been for them.
Dr. Moskovitz brings you right up to date with his second edition in regards to treatment. He discusses the latest about psychotropic medication, EMDR and DBT.
It is important to know that the BPD is treatable and that you can get better.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book Is a Gift to the World 8 avril 2003
Par Susan Rose Blauner - Publié sur
I discovered LOST IN THE MIRROR three weeks ago. For the first time in my life I am reading someone else's words about borderline and exclaiming, 'Yes, that is what I've had to deal with all these years!' Had I known about this book in 1998, I might not have overdosed for the third time. After seventeen years of therapy I now live a healthy life. Still, LOST IN THE MIRROR has things to teach me. Through it, I'm developing a deeper understanding of how and why I respond and react to intimate relationships with all-or-nothing thinking. I am learning about dissociation. To anyone living with borderline personality disorder, and their families and friends, please know that there is a way out. LOST IN THE MIRROR can help you find it. ...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Book 14 mai 2001
Par Timothy Pheil - Publié sur
I am the webowner of the Mental Health Sanctuary and was delighted to read the updated version of this book.
This book was intrumental in helping me to understand my wife and myself as well, as the two of us have this disorder.
There is a special section for people involved with those who have the BPD.
I was very glad to see the new edition come out as I believe it will clear up a lot of misunderstandings about treating this disorder. Since his first edition, new information has come out regarding treatment and Dr. Moskovitz brings you up to date.
Dr. Moskovitz brings up the importance of medication in treating the BPD which many books do not touch on.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 good resource 24 avril 2003
Par fezabel - Publié sur
I read this book after being 'officially' diagnosed with BPD. I found it extremely easy to read with short chapters and good examples of real people. I didn't like the rather simplistic approach to medications and treatment options and the assumption that recovery without a professional is impossible. I think a bit more about how to help oneself in recovery would have been very nice.
I recommend it for Borderlines as well as significant others and loved ones of Borderlines.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Emotionally relieving - little practical application 12 avril 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
i'm only half-way through this book, but every time i pick it up i feel a tremendous sense of release. as someone who has been diagnosed with bpd i find this book very comforting, as the author is immeasurably kind in describing the borderline personality. as another reader has said, this book provides an excellent (though contrived and somewhat patronizing) overview of extreme bpd but does not address less-extreme, more functional forms of the illness. i would recommend this book for people who are suffering from bpd and are looking for a compassionate and soothing voice, though not for bpd's looking for practical behavior modifying skills and/or bpd's looking to start treatment.

If you are borderline, you lack an enduring trust in the goodness of your love objects and yourself; you have little tolerance for flaws in yourself or others, and you are unable to comfort yourself while alone. &quote;
Marqué par 46 utilisateurs Kindle
Emotional pain then becomes excruciating because it seems endless. You are unable to tap past experience and to appreciate that pain is temporary and can be survived. &quote;
Marqué par 30 utilisateurs Kindle
To be borderline is to have little sense of who you are or what turns you on. At its extreme, it may mean having to turn to others for cues in order to know when to eat or drink, work or rest, or even laugh or cry. It may mean intensely embracing a person, idea, or thing one day, and having no use at all for it the next. This lack of a constant picture of one's self, one's values, or one's passions is at the heart of the borderline personality. &quote;
