Introducing a breakthrough, integrative approach to managing your borderline personality disorder (BPD).
If you’ve been diagnosed with BPD you may feel a number of emotions—including shock, shame, sadness, abandonment, emptiness, or even anger. Even worse, you may be tempted to research your diagnosis online, only to find doomsday scenarios and terrible prognoses everywhere you click. Take a deep breath. You can get through this—and this workbook will help guide you.
Despite what you may have read or been told, BPD is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Like many mental health issues, it manifests on a spectrum, and while some people may encounter extreme symptoms and consequences on one end, others may be less affected on the other. What do you all have in common? You likely experience difficulty balancing your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. And you may even have trouble seeing yourself clearly—continuously switching from the hero to the villain of the story you’ve written about your life. So, how can you make sense of it all and start on the road to healing?
Rather than utilizing a one-size-fits-all treatment, this groundbreaking and comprehensive workbook meets you where you are on your therapeutic journey, and provides an integrative approach to treating BPD drawing on evidence-based dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and interpersonal therapy. With this compassionate workbook, you’ll gain a greater understanding of your BPD, uncover your own emotional triggers, and discover your own personal motivators for positive change.
Your BPD has determined how you see and live your life, but it doesn’t have to define you forever. With this workbook as your guide, you’ll be ready to face your diagnosis head-on, and take those important first steps toward lasting wellness.

“Daniel Fox has bridged the gap between the classic understanding and contemporary application of the authoritative findings concerning personality pathology. In his latest book, Fox has unraveled the dual construct of personality development toward more accurate identification and effective intervention—now and for future generations. The inclusion of the information addressing online behavioral expression is timely and crucial for a culture driven by social media. Online users have practical tools to alert them to unsuspected predators, and/or dating prospects who may have underlying personality pathology. The academic, mental health, and social communities will be forever indebted to Fox.”
—Verdi Rountree Lethermon, PhD, retired director of the Houston Police Department’s psychological services division, previous adjunct professor at the University of St. Thomas and Houston Baptist University, and private practice clinician
“Daniel Fox won’t let you off easy. The Borderline Personality Disorder Workbook is truly a book that expects you to WORK! If you think you might have some symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD), and are willing to address these problems, and, most of all, are truly committed to working hard at fixing them, this is the book you need.”

“When working with clients who present with personality disorders, it is sometimes difficult for our clients to grasp the concept of a personality disorder, and even more difficult for them to acquire, execute, and maintain the skills necessary to successfully navigate their everyday lives. As a psychologist and mental health professional, I am always seeking better and more efficient resources that assist my clients on their journey in therapy, as well as providing some structure when developing treatment plans. Well, I hit the jackpot with this resource! Fox has done a marvelous job creating a resource that really helps to better facilitate this work! This workbook is user friendly and can either be used while someone is currently in treatment with a mental health professional, or independently attempting to improve their lives. This workbook does an excellent job breaking down the who, what, when, where, and how of navigating the diagnosis of BPD, and will definitely be an excellent addition to my referral resources for both clinicians and patients!”

If you suffer from BPD, this book offers you a clear path toward creating stable and meaningful relationships, developing a compassionate and clearer understanding of yourself, and shedding your feelings of being alone and hopeless.

—Russ Wood, PhD, founder and director of Clear Fork Psychology Services; has treated individuals suffering from BPD and other personality disorders since the 1980s
“Fox has written a superb book that helps both people with borderline personality and the therapists who work with this disorder. In this workbook, Fox lucidly integrates evidence-based techniques and tools to help with thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and relationships—treating those with borderline personality as whole people who can achieve and maintain success and recovery. Fox’s work is a must-have for those who want to understand, treat, and recover from borderline personality. Enthusiastically recommended!”
—Lane Pederson, PsyD, author of The Expanded Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Training Manual, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and DBT Skills Training for Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment Settings
“Daniel Fox has taken his extensive knowledge of this challenging clinical population and has synthesized the literature with his own therapeutic experience and style. The Borderline Personality Disorder Workbook challenges the individual with this disorder to change through a series of self-examination exercises of one’s beliefs and behaviors, and why these behaviors are maintained. Through a systematic process of exploring what BPD is, to understanding the nature of the problem and acting on what has been learned, the person with BPD is guided to conquering their conflicts and building and eventually maintaining a new self. The workbook may also be used by mental health professionals working with persons with the challenge of BPD.”

I have yet to finish this workbook but find that, in combination with therapy, I’m learning much more about BPD and myself.
Here’s to healing ❤️🩹
I know how hard battling with this disease is. I've been dealing with it since I was 13. To whomever is reading this, I am wishing you luck on conquering this because you are strong enough to do so. Even though it may not feel like it. That's your BPD telling you that you arent. I love you and I hope this book helps you the way it helped me.
Now for my fellow BPD'ers/potential BPD'ers/BPD Spectrum folks out there: This workbook SUCKS. It's also the best thing that has happened to my therapy journey. Anytime you want to put this book down, it's like Dr. Fox sees the future - there is almost always a moment when I want to chuck it across the room and then there's a sentence that reads, "I know you want to chuck this book across the room right now. Changing thoughts is HARD, but you've got this." Or "You did a hard thing, you should definitely eat a piece of cheesecake." I'm paraphrasing, but it is UNCANNY that he knows when you're going to start ramping up and puts a word of encouragement in the chapter. Like, guys, THIS WORKBOOK WILL NOT ABANDON YOU AND WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO EAT CAKE.
This book will also make you feel ALL KINDS OF WAYS. It'll make you write down stuff that is HARD and EMBARRASSING and FRUSTRATING. It might trigger an episode. It might trigger five episodes. Dr. Fox legit knows this, because therapy is HARD. There are breaks built into the book and he repeatedly reassures you that you are totally, completely, 100% okay to put the book down and walk away and use a coping strategy and come back when you're ready. But, here's the rub: If you keep doing the work, especially if you're taking it to therapy with you, you read back the stuff you wrote down that was hard and embarrassing and frustrating and you start gaining CLARITY and INSIGHT and TOOLS to manage your emotions. As you learn more about yourself, you gain knowledge and skills to challenge false beliefs, recognize triggers, categorize feelings and relationships, and build strategies that will legit set a course for better days with fewer episodes. Those moments of recognition and discovery are called "breakthroughs" I guess, but they legit feel like a veil lifting and it's squirrely feeling knowing that our brains are super great at hiding things about ourselves as a protective mechanism.
I'm not 100% better. I'm not even 100% done with my workbook, but I feel like I now have the words and the homework to effectively communicate with my therapist. That is priceless.
Buy the book. Watch Dr. Fox's YouTube channel.
p.s. I haven't devalued this book and I've been using it for four months. ;)

It is a work book so there are plenty of practical exercises, which are really useful. Everything is explained really clearly and empathically. There is also a really helpful summary and 'what did you learn' at the end of each chapter.
I am so grateful to have a resource like this. Thank you Dr Fox.
