5.0 étoiles sur 5 How to live effectively with a person who has Borderline Personality Disorder, and not make it worse! 17 mars 2016
Par Bibliophile - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié

1. How to recognize the behavior pattern of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), including:
(1) Equating feelings with facts.
(2) Jumping to negative conclusions without any supporting facts.
(3) Assuming others are thinking poorly of them.
(4) Catastrophizing. Thinking the worst-case scenario will happen no matter what.
(5) Blaming others while being held accountable for nothing.
(6) Quietly self-critical while repelling compliments.
(7) Lying or blowing the truth out of proportion.

2. How to properly respond to a family member who has BPD.
3. How to distinguish between Higher-functioning and Lower-functioning BPDs.
4. How a BPD spouse will argue like a young child, not be aware of his or her own emotions, overreact to either real or imagined rejection, and possibly be aggressively destructive toward self or others.
5. How the non-BPD spouse will be blamed for all the marital problems, be "damned-if-I-do" and "damned-if-I-don't", be pushed away by BPD spouse and then blamed when he backs off.
6. How medications can reduce BPD symptoms of depression, mood swings, dissociation, aggression, and impulsivity.
7. The value of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which accomplishes two opposite things: accepting the person with BPD, but teaching the BPD new skills, especially communication skills.
8. How to assess whether or not to treat a person with BPD, a very difficult disorder to treat.
9. The non-BPD person can learn:
(1) How not to give in to threats or isolation.
(2) How to practice acceptance of the BPD.
(3) How to set limits on how much damage to take from the BPD.
(4) How not to become pre-occupied with preventing an outburst from the BPD.
(5) How to set limits and boundaries for the BPD.
(6) How to practice deep-breathing at the outset of a BPD's outburst.
(7) How to respond to verbal abuse from the BPD.
(8) The value of empathy and "intentional communication."
(9) How to diffuse a situation using non-combative statements, keeping one's face soft and one's tone calm and neutral, using positive self-talk, validating the BPD's feelings while standing firm by your limits.
(10) How to use the least reinforcing scenario by standing still and remaining motionless.
(11) Praising the BPD's good behavior.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST read for families, friends, clinicians, doctors, etc. 25 janvier 2010
Par socwkr - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I wish there was a better way to get the word out that this book is hands down a MUST read for anyone who has been impacted by someone they care about living with a personality disorder. I am a clinical social worker and I recommend this book whenever possible-- to the families of my clients, when I am giving presentations or teaching students. Although the book is specifically written for how to cope, understand and interact with someone living with BPD, Kreger offers some great suggestions for anyone in need of support for how to interact with a person having problems with interpersonal relationships and managing emotions.

You can read the first chapter "Welcome to Oz" in it's entirety on Google Books. However, there are two chapters I continually find to be the most helpful. Chapter 3: "Making sense of your relationship" is excellent. It offers insight for the reader to better understand how BPD features challenge a relationship. Kreger describes easy to understand concepts such as childlike characteristics, low emotional intelligence, rejection sensitivity and impulsive aggression. I also highly recommend Chapter 9: "Communicate to be heard," which educates the reader on BPD communication deficits and how to create a "climate of cooperation" with the person living with BPD. Kreger walks you through step by step how to verbally acknowledge what the other person is feeling. She offers specific words that can be used with the person such as "I want to hear about it, but it's hard for me when things get too emotional. I want to give you my full attention and that's too hard for me to do right now. Let me have a little while to calm down and then we can talk" Kreger's writing style is accessible and easy to follow. There are case examples in the book, but they are not too overpowering. The book is packed with useful information that will hit home for many readers.

Randi Kreger has done us all--professional therapists and the general public--an enormous favor by bringing this elusive, puzzling 'mental illness' into the public eye in a non-judgmental tone, lending understanding & compassion to the individual struggling to get through life for reasons they do not understand as well as to the family--child, spouse, parents--bewildered by a condition that is there one minute, disrupting family interactions, and gone the next leaving hardly a trace--except in the minds of those around the individual with the problem. It is as if, once the person has off-loaded their anxiety, humiliation, rage, and depression, their equilibrium has been restored but at the expense of everyone else. How to understand this, what to do about it, what to expect in the future: These are all powerful questions Randi tackles head-on. The answers are not simple, and the results are not always predictable, but Randi gives clarity and hope to the family struggling to live with a family member whose mind becomes intermittently clouded by this all-too-common problem that--without the help Randi provides--can result in enormous, chronic emotional pain and suffering. A must for EVERY therapist and for every family where someone continuously disrupts the equilibrium and seems unable to reflect on his or her participation, except to see themselves as the victim.

I'm really not qualified to rate this book professionally but it certainly was informative and clearly written. It changed my life with regard to a very important relationship in my life. Instead of anger, I now feel compassion and love. Reading this book is an important step in understanding this disorder.
