A plug for this book, just out from one of my clinical colleagues in Sydney.
Guidelines for the Management and Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder.
This is a very practical hands on book focussing on what to do and how to respond to this complex client group. It promotes a strong Linehan model (dialectical behaviour therapy). The newer Transference Focussed and Schema Focussed don’t get much of a mention. It has good chapters on working with other health profession and managing risk. I definitely recommend it.If you are in Australia or even if you are not in Australia and want to know about this book contact Julia Shearsby at Bankstown Mental Health.
