Stop Walking on Eggshells: Taking Your Life Back When Someone You Care about Has Borderline Personality Disorder
People with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) challenge those close to them with their often bewildering mood shifts and unpredictable behavior. For those people who have relationships with persons with BPD, whether they be relatives, friends, spouses, parents, or children, this book should prove a godsend. It delineates the ways in which borderline individuals' (BPs) behavior and communications frustrate and perplex those around them but goes further in articulating specific strategies that those close to the person with Borderline Personality Disorder (non-BPs, as they are termed in this book) can effectively cope with these kinds of behaviors.
