Borderline Personality disorder throws millions of lives into chaos not just the lives of people with the disorder-but also those of the people around them. Here, at last, is a book of survival and empowerment for anyone who cares about someone with Borderline Personality Disorder. This is a truly invaluable resource-a must read.--John Bradshaw, host of the PBS series "Bradshaw on the Family" and author of the best selling books "Bradshaw on the Family" and "Healing the Shame that Binds You"Vom Verlag:
Author Randi Kreger draws on the practical wisdom of the internet community of relatives and friends of those who have borderline personality disorder that formed in response to her bestselling guide, Stop Walking on Eggshells. Her new workbook offers a wealth of practical strategies to help readers set and enforce limits, care for themselves, and cope with living with someone who has this volatile and exhausting condition. The symptoms of borderline personality disorder include severe mood shifts, unfounded accusations and wildly inappropriate displays of anger, a range of self-destructive behaviours, and frantic efforts to avoid abandonment. For the friends and families of those who have the disorder, the emotional fallout can be devastating. In Stop Walking on Eggshells, author Randi Kreger drew on her own experience to help readers understand BPD and begin to recognize what they could do to cope with the disorder and begin to take care of themselves. The response was overwhelming, producing thousands of emails to the author's website and a wealth of insight and understanding. In The Stop Walking on Eggshells Workbook, Kreger draws on this material, together with extensive new research, to provide a workbook of practical, proven advice to help readers successfully survive life with someone who has BPD. Readers begin by facing their core beliefs about BPD and learning what they need to do to handle their own negative feelings and transform their assumptions about the person with BPD in their life. Step-by-step suggestions help readers set and enforce personal limits, communicate clearly, cope with putdowns and rage, develop a safety plan, and make realistic decisions. Interwoven throughout the text are an array of worksheets, checklists, and exercises that build on one another and enable readers to apply the suggestions they find to their own lives.
