Description

If you are like many others living with borderline personality disorder (BPD), you know what it's like to be overwhelmed by intense and fluctuating emotions; to have difficulty with relationships; and to constantly struggle with troubling thoughts and behaviors. BPD can be especially difficult to treat, though there are ways to gain control over your symptoms and live a happier, healthier life.

Expanding on the core skill of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Mindfulness for Borderline Personality Disorder will help you target and successfully manage many of the familiar symptoms of BPD. Here, you will learn the basics of mindfulness through specific exercises and will gain powerful insight through real-life stories from people who have BPD. If you are ready to take that first step on the path toward wellness, this book will be your guide.

Yes, this is the book you are looking for

I loved this book. From history of BPD to it's biology, from very descriptive examples to actually really working practices. I'm new to this topic, but this book is my favorite so far.
Highlights:
(+) BPD is actually explained here. It's not just a book about what to do it's also a book about what it is
(+) I liked the narrator very much. This is subjective, but I think both voice and intonation are very nice
(-) Not a word about Favorite Person (FP)
I recommended this book to all friends with BPD. Good luck, guys!

Recommend

As a therapist, I have recommended this book to my clients. It gives hope to people w BPD for ways to practice to lessen/end their suffering. This book gives real life examples from real people w BPD and how these techniques have worked for them. This is not a "quick fix". It takes practice and determination. It describes the techniques in a clear understandable manner. These techniques build upon each other. If you listen/read this book all the way thru, don't become overwhelmed. Remember it is a process that takes time and practice. I would recommend reading it thru one time, then come back and go thru and practice taking each chapter/techniques one at a time. Practice it till you feel comfortable before moving to the next chapter.
I listened to this book read by Laura Copland on my 30 min drive to work in the morning. She does an excellent job. Her voice has good variable pitch and rhythm. She reads at a good rate; not too fast and not too slow. She expresses emotion when needed but does not over do it. I've listened to previews of other books I would like to hear while driving but the reader's voice was monotone or their voice was too exaggerated. Laura Copland's voice kept my attention, but I was focused on the content and not her voice.

Helpful

Very practical, helpful information. Good for everyone not just those with BPD. I wish it had a different title as I'd like to recommend to others but worried that it may offend.

Packed with useful tools for managing BPD

Would you consider the audio edition of Mindfulness for Borderline Personality Disorder to be better than the print version?

I've never read the print version, but I appreciate the audio version for when my mind is too riled up to focus on a printed book.

What did you like best about this story?

The authors provide several useful acronyms and exercises, which are particularly useful when trying to remember skills in an emotionally heated moment.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite exercise is ride the wave, which provides an acronym to remember the steps required to ground oneself when prone to dissociation.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wanted to take breaks to practice the exercises as I read about them.

Recommend highly

Clear and to the point summary of BPD, and instructions of various mindfulness exercises that seem relevant and helpful (have only started the practices). No fluff.
