if this person is a relative. Marsha Linehan is probably one of the foremost experts
on this subject. She presents a wealth of relevant information. I have not completely
and carefully read the entire manual yet, but I intend to shortly. Note that I have read
other BPD books, and I believe that this is the most comprehensive and helpful of
all of the books that I have read.
A recent article in The Atlantic by D. Dobbs describes the "genetic vulnerability" model for those at risk for "depression, anxiety, ADHD, ... anti-social sociopathic or violent behaviors." The invalidating environment that Linehan stresses may be the deciding factor in what happens to these high-risk people, whether they become sociopaths, addicts, or "creative, successful, and happy people."
Book is being updated though, so dont spend all the money on this edition because it will be outdated in the next year UNLESS you are instructed to purchase and fully utilize this edition.
