Borderline Personality Disorder


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

"This is a remarkable book, both erudite and personal. The authors take us beyond the medical label to the inner world of individuals suffering from BPD. We are able to witness, up close and personal, the genesis and development of an ego traumatized by abandonment, wounded by relational failures, and torn between the intense longing for intimacy and uncontrollable anger towards the other. The take-home message of this book is that in spite of the challenges of treating a long untreated trauma, healing can still occur, only if a therapist is able to stick to clients' experiences and stay engaged with authentic empathy, even when he becomes the target of therapeutic rage. I highly recommend this book to both novice and seasoned psychotherapists." -- Paul T. P. Wong, PhD, C.Psych, President of the International Network on Personal Meaning "A book-length critique of the concept of 'borderline personality disorder' is long overdue, and Jacqueline Simon Gunn and Brent Potter have achieved this deconstruction masterfully. Their book will go a long way toward humanizing and contextualizing the clinical phenomena under discussion." -- Robert D. Stolorow, PhD, Author, World, Affectivity, Trauma: Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis (Routledge, 2011)
