Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) lags far behind other disorders such as schizophrenia in terms of research and treatment interventions. Debates about diagnosis, etiology, neurobiology, genetics, medication, and treatment still persist. Borderline Personality Disorder brings together over two dozen of the field's leading experts in one enlightening text. The book also offers mental health providers a view of BPD from the perspectives of sufferers as well as family members to foster an understanding of the experiences of relatives who are often devastated by their loved ones' struggles with this common disorder.

Although there has been an increasing interest in BPD in terms of research funding, treatment advancement, and acknowledgment of family perspective over the last decade, the fact remains that the disorder is still highly stigmatized. Borderline Personality Disorder provides social workers and other mental health clinicians with practical access to the knowledge necessary for effective treatment in a single volume of the most current research, information, and management considerations. This important collection explores the latest methods and approaches to treating BPD patients and supporting their families. This useful text also features handy worksheets and numerous tables that present pertinent information clearly.
