'People meeting diagnostic criteria for borderline personality disorder represent a small percentage of the population, yet are over-represented in the challenges facing mental health services. Once seen as "untreatable", these people are still all too often mistreated and misdiagnosed, resulting in prolonged and unhelpful relationships with services that are taxing to clients and clinicians alike.
This book draws on latest research and clinical experience to provide hope - and evidence - that people meeting diagnostic criteria for borderline personality disorder can be effectively and successfully treated. The book presents a pragmatic, down-to-earth and humane treatment approach for mental health and substance clinicians.'
