Summary Note BPD is a chronic, disabling psychiatric condition that causes extreme instability in one's emotional life, behavior, and self-image, and severely impacts the relationships with one's family and friends. With an estimated 5.6% of the US population affected and an expanding awareness of the disorder, Dr. Robert O. Friedel offers a fully revised and updated edition of Borderline personality disorder demystified. A leading expert in BPD and a pioneer in its treatment, Friedel has turned his vast experience into a useful, supportive guide. The book helps readers to understand the underlying causes of BPD, the course it takes, challenges of reaching an accurate diagnosis, treatment options, and coping strategies. For anyone diagnosed, who suspects they may have BPD, or whose friend or loved one suffers from the condition, this is a must-have resource to understand the disorder and seek effective treatment.
