Four chapters into this book and my life is transformed. This book explained it in ways that made it so easy to take on. The writing is non-confrontational, not accusatory, absolutely reassuring, and explanatory.
I was diagnosed with BPD years ago and it was a relief. Then I took on the task of researching the diagnosis and that was horrific. When I read there was no cure I felt helpless. Remission is achievable by taking control and teaching your brain to work the way you want it to. I first started with Cognitive Behavior Therapy and something was missing. Moved on to Dialectical Behavior Therapy and thought ......WHAT is "Mindfulness"??
I think I found this book at the exact right time. After three years of Internet study into both DBT and CBT, countless hours of poring over worksheets online, and looking up Mindfulness, and actually Practicing Mindfulness, this book opened my eyes. Instead of just practicing Mindfulness I'm successfully actuating Mindfulness.
The price is amazing. The book is amazing. I'm not kidding when I say that I am a different person now than I was when this book showed up on my doorstep. I am more peaceful, calm, accepting, and in control of myself. This book does wonders for the mind. It explains WHY seemingly unrelated tasks can help by explaining chemicals and synapses and brain functions.
I am a Christian. I had a hard time with some of the solutions, which mention tenets of Buddhism and Transcedental Meditation; not a fan...however, the authors are clear that the method regardless of label is the key. You don't have to "convert" or lose your faith. Just do the exercises (I'm still reading, about midway)...they help. Trust me. Take it from someone who has absolutely no network to support him presently: if I can make it out of these dark and painful days, I think anyone can. Highly recommend.
In 2010, at 50 yo, I began to understand how child abuse (physical and emotional) had impacted my life. As I began to work through that I began getting anger, which came out of nowhere, resolved.
Although I got rid of a lot of the "negative emotions I was unable to put together positive feelings. I then began to read Dr. Conrad Baar's books. This was another step. Look him up and read my reviews there.
Now I have stepped into this DBT book. Another positive step.
I want to expand upon this at a later date but have not got the time.
I found a counselor that is certified in DBT as well. Just going through this book has started making some improvements in my life.
