marsha linehan’s dialectical behavioral therapy skills workbook (NOT the text book) is helpful, but meds are the way to go. it’s a brain problem, not just a habit problem.

I have found the publication entitled “Somertimes I Act Crazy: Living with Borderline Personality Disorder”, by Kreisman and Straus (same authors of “I Hate You, Don’t Leave Me”, which was published in the ’90s). I really like that it is not totally DBT focused, gives new strategies and offers some hope for the future. I would highly recommend this book!
