Publisher's Summary

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.

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.
