Book Review: The Mindfulness Solution for Intense Emotions
As a therapist who has worked with children and adolescents who struggle with emotion dysregulation, anger management, and trauma, I found DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) helpful in conceptualizing the emotional challenges of my clients. DBT was also helpful in guiding my clients toward greater understanding, primarily when discussing the tendency to either rationalize or emotionally reason through challenges in life. As a beginning therapist, I recognized that Wise Mind was a DBT concept that many of my clients (experienced and inexperienced) found practical and understandable. One of the most intimidating parts of ps...

Why Do Teens Cut and What Can Parents Do To Help?
McLean Hospital Guest Blogger Michael R. Hollander, PhD Approximately 14 to 18 percent of high school students and between 12 to 35 percent of college students in the United States engage in some form of self-injurious behavior at least once. The age of onset often occurs in early adolescence, between the ages of 11 and 14. While self-harm is of serious concern for parents, families, and teachers, it's important to know that when the right approach and treatment is provided in a timely manner, this behavior is highly treatable. But kids who self-harm need treatment right away. Giving in to pleas for more time and delayin...

Do people with borderline personality disorder complicated by antisocial personality disorder benefit from the STEPPS treatment program?
We describe results from two data sets on outcome in persons who participated in STEPPS with BPD alone or BPD plus antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). In Study 1, we examined the effect of comorbid ASPD on outcome in 65 persons with BPD who participated in a randomized controlled trial at an academic medical centre. In Study 2, we examined the effect of comorbid ASPD on outcome in 64 offenders with BPD who participated in STEPPS in correctional settings. All subjects were assessed for the presence of BPD and ASPD. In Study 1, subjects with ASPD experienced greater improvement in BPD symptoms, impulsiveness and global s...

Using Technology to Break Taboos
Whenever I write articles with a disclosure about my mental health issues, I always receive two types of response; firstly, people will commend me for being ‘brave’ and then there will be a couple of people who ‘come out’ to me about their mental illness. I use the colloquialism carefully because there’s always a somewhat apologetic ‘confession’ where mental illness is concerned.  And a sense of fear that our relationship will now be forever tarnished because it isn’t ‘normal’.  Even though these reactions are ‘usual’, it still surprises me t...

What is Narcissistic Abuse?
Narcissists don’t really love themselves. Actually, they’re driven by shame. It’s the idealized image of themselves, which they convince themselves they embody, that they admire. But deep down, narcissists feel the gap between the façade they show the world and their shame-based self. They work hard to avoid feeling that shame. This gap is true for other codependents as well, but a narcissist uses defense mechanisms that are destructive to relationships and cause pain and damage to their loved ones’ self-esteem.
