Full title: “Coping with BPD: DBT and CBT Skills to Soothe the Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder” by Blaise Aguirre, MD and Gillian Galen, PsyD. Foreword by Alec Miller, PsyD.
What I really liked about this book is the sections that show what each item looks like in real life. There are a few items in here that I can really use, such as the parts on Paranoia, Mood-Dependent Behavior, Procrastination, Negative Self-Thoughts, Living In The Past or Future and Invalidating Yourself.
This is an excellent book to refer to any time you’re unsure of what to do with intense emotions and symptoms of BPD. You just turn to whatever item you’re having trouble with and there it describes The Problem, What It Looks Like, The Practice and then there’s a helpful checklist at the end of each item.
