New Books We Recommend
FBPDA is excited to recommend Shari Manning's book Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder: How to Keep Out-of-Control Emotions from Destroying Your Relationship. Shari is the former President/CEO of Behavioral Tech and she recently founded Treatment Implementation Collaborative and provides DBT training to mental health professionals throughout the United States.
Her book is published by Guilford Press.
We are also thrilled to be telling everyone about BPD advocate and educator Kiera Van Gelder's book The Buddha and the Borderline: My Recovery from BPD Through Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Buddhism, and Online Dating.
