Publisher Description

This new edition of Borderline Personality Disorder in Adolescents offers parents, caregivers, and adolescents themselves a complete understanding of this complex and tough-to-treat disorder. It is a comprehensive guide which thoroughly explains what BPD is and what a patient's treatment options are, including an overview of the revolutionary new treatment called dialectic behaviour therapy. Author Blaise A. Aguirre, M.D., one of the foremost experts in the field, describes recent advances in treatments and brings into focus what we know, and don't know, about this condition. Revised and updated from the previous edition, readers will learn all about the scientific development of BPD; treatment options (e.g., medication and therapy); myths and misunderstandings; tips and strategies for parents; the prognosis for BPD; and practical techniques for effective communication with those who have BPD. They will also hear from BPD adolescents and parents who have learned how to make the best of the cards they have been dealt. Here's what some experts in the field had to say about the previous edition:

'Families and their children with BPD will find this book a very useful guide as they struggle together toward a more fully realized life.' - Mary C. Zanarini, Ed.D., Professor of Psychology, Harvard Medical School

'A long overdue book that eloquently and expertly addresses the wide-ranging issues surrounding borderline personality disorder in adolescents. This compassionate book is a must for parents with children suffering from borderline personality disorder, as well as clinicians, educators, pediatricians, and clergy trying to understand and help adolescents with this serious, chronic disorder.' - Perry D. Hoffman, Ph.D., President, National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder
