This book offers therapists and patients a user-friendly guide to general principles of treatment via case examples, therapeutic conversations, and common comorbid problems. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has a suicide rate similar to schizophrenia and major depression, but for many years, it was considered intractable. The Conversational Model is scientifically-based on the research data described in Meares's Dissociation Model of Borderline Personality Disorder, and offers unique treatment protocols for the trauma associated with BPD. Rich with clinical tips and case examples, this book will help a range of mental health professionals working with patients suffering from this debilitating disorder.
