Guide Review - The Stop Walking on Eggshells Workbook - Book Review
This is a great book for anyone who cares about someone with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Even the most seasoned friend or family member will be able to learn something new or enhance his or her current understanding of BPD and the impact of the disorder.
The book first focuses on ensuring that the reader understands BPD: the disorder, BPD-impacted relationship patterns, and how it affects the non-BP. Then, the workbook assists readers in focusing what they can change and improving general communication skills. Finally, readers are guided in decision-making and getting qualified professional help.
The authors also include a glossary, a reading resource list, and a safety plan for domestic violence situations.
If only one book is chosen by someone who cares about someone who may or may not have BPD, this should be it. This may be the best resource for those who are affected by someone who has BPD. The information and exercises in this book will assist the non-BP in gaining knowledge, making informed decisions, and having a voice in their relationships.
