Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide, by Mark S. Silver

Mark S. Silver presents a unique, humanistic perspective on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Using a psychosocial model, this book compellingly argues that a comprehensive and systematic understanding of a borderline individual’s behaviors, emotions, and thought patterns can significantly enhance their quality of life, judgment, and decision-making.

By assigning clinical significance to seemingly minor behaviors, emotions, and thinking, we can unveil the underlying sources of fear, anxiety, sadness, uncertainty, guilt, and inner conflict in those with BPD. This book offers an expanded set of criteria that goes beyond what’s found in the DSM-5, providing a more holistic understanding of BPD. It shows how the chaos within the borderline’s internal world, fractured interpersonal communication, limited functioning, and isolation can be replaced with life-skills development, leading to an overall improved quality of life. This transformation allows the healthiest aspects of the person to emerge, fostering contentment, safety, stability, and authenticity.
