DBT Skills Training Manual, Second Edition
For years I worked in a state hospital and a community mental health center. One thing I noticed early on was that when staff found a client to be difficult or resistant — or even just hard to like — too often they gave a diagnosis of borderline. Sometimes it would happen just because a client made a choice that her therapist didn’t like: Suddenly, the therapist would give a new, unjustified diagnosis. I am grateful to psychologist Marsha Linehan for helping to change this dynamic when she developed a new form of psychotherapy called dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in the late 1980s.&nbs...

Self-Hate Attacks: What Are They?
Conclusion: No matter what the etiology, the goal is to recognize the problem, learn from it, and extricate oneself as soon as possible to avoid loss of time and energy.

Meditate And Live Longer
Before I practiced medicine at my Wellness Center, I was a sports physiology educator. So I know first-hand the value of a sound mind in a sound body. In fact, my “whole-body, whole-mind” approach led me to study anti-aging in depth, which as you know has become my main areas of specialization. In fact, I was one of the first physicians in the country to be certified as an anti-aging specialist. While advising a gymnastics team back in those early days, I often found myself dealing with the mental states of athletes. And that’s when I really discovered the power of meditation. I taught many of these gymna...

Book Review: Unhinged
Anna Berry’s Unhinged is an intense read — a personal, in-depth account of the heartbreaking and grueling components of a life with mental illness. However, a pertinent takeaway message for readers is the optimistic road to recovery — one that doesn’t necessarily have to involve medication. Unhinged delves into Berry’s painful history with mental illness. The beginning pages depict a rather exhaustive list of the multiple diagnoses she has received over the years. She validates her diagnosis of borderline personality disorder — an unstable childhood upbringing most likely left a poignant...

Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder
Caring about someone with borderline personality disorder (BPD) tosses you on a roller coaster ride from being loved and lauded to abandoned and bashed. Having BPD is no picnic, either. You live in unbearable psychic pain most of the time on the border between reality and psychosis. Your illness distorts your perceptions, causing antagonistic behavior and making the world a perilous place. The pain and terror of abandonment and feeling unwanted can be so great that suicide feels like a better choice. If you like drama, excitement, and intensity, enjoy the ride, because things will never be calm. Following a passionate begi...
