Applications of Good Psychiatric Management for Borderline Personality Disorder: A Practical Guide 2019 Original PDF
Inspired by the 2014 handbook on Good Psychiatric Management (GPM), Applications of Good Psychiatric Management for Borderline Personality Disorder: A Practical Guide distills the latest scientific research on borderline personality disorder (BPD) into a useful guide for any generalist practitioner who wants a basic skill set to effectively manage patients with BPD. Written in a down-to-earth style, this book serves as a practical road map for clinicians from all corners of the clinical universe: the primary care provider, the emergency room doctor, the social worker, the psychopharmacologist, the psychotherapy supervisor, the dialectical behavior therapy specialist, and the generalist in an outpatient clinic, as well as other practitioners. Emphasizing GPM’s efficacy and arguing for its relevance and utility across diverse patient populations, clinical settings, and practitioner roles, the volume provides helpful how-to advice and wisdom for managing patient care. The book is not about lengthy intensive interventions, it is about management strategies (i.e., calming, encouraging, advising) to enable patients with BPD to pursue productive lives.
