Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This is an essential book for both clinicians and researchers. There are many books on borderline personality disorder but this is the only one which comprehensively integrates current understanding of the disorder with empirical evidence and systematically links it with daily clinical practice. In the first edition of this book John Gunderson provided an exemplary clinical guide to the treatment of the disorder. In this up-dated edition, he excels. As a master clinician, he draws on a lifetime's experience to answer common but complex clinical questions; as a master researcher, he assesses the relevance of research to daily practice; and as an authority he brings balance, clarity and scholarship to his discussion of competing approaches to treatment. This is an exceptional book which should be read by every practitioner treating patients with borderline personality disorder. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Covering the range of clinical presentations, treatments, and levels of care, Borderline Personality Disorder: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD). The second edition includes new research about BPD s relationship to other disorders and up-to-date descriptions of empirically validated treatments, including cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approaches. Compelling new research also indicates a much better prognosis for BPD than previously known.

A pioneer in the field, author John Gunderson, M.D., director of the Borderline Personality Disorder Center at McLean Hospital, draws from nearly 40 years of his own research and experience. This background is now complemented by the added clinical and research experience of Paul Links, M.D. The guide begins with a clear and specific definition of BPD and provides an in-depth description of multiple modalities of treatment, including pharmacotherapy, family therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapies. Gunderson outlines therapeutic approaches for multiple settings, such as hospitalization, partial hospitalization programs, and outpatient care. Complementing the well-organized treatment guide are a series of informative sidebars, recommending specific do s and don ts for disclosing the diagnosis, discussing medications, meeting with families, and managing suicidality.

A synthesis of theory and practical examples, Borderline Personality Disorder: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition, provides a thorough and practical manual for any clinician working with BPD patients.

About the Author: John G. Gunderson, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Director of Psychosocial and Personality Research and Chief of Ambulatory Personality Disorder Services at McLean Hospital, Belmont, Massachusetts. He has worked in the diagnostic and treatment of borderline patients since 1969, including carrying out important studies helping to define the diagnosis and differentiate it from other disorders. He continues to work in advancing effective treatments today.

Book Description American Psychiatric Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Borderline Personality Disorder: A Clinical Guide (2nd Revised edition), John G. Gunderson, Paul S. Links, Covering the range of clinical presentations, treatments, and levels of care, Borderline Personality Disorder: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD). The second edition includes new research about BPD's relationship to other disorders and up-to-date descriptions of empirically validated treatments, including cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approaches. Compelling new research also indicates a much better prognosis for BPD than previously known. A pioneer in the field, author John Gunderson, M.D., director of the Borderline Personality Disorder Center at McLean Hospital, draws from nearly 40 years of research and clinical experience. The guide begins with a clear and specific definition of BPD, informed by a nuanced overview of the historical evolution of the diagnosis and a thoughtful discussion of misdiagnosis. Offering a complete evaluation of treatment approaches, Dr. Gunderson provides an authoritative overview of the treatment options and describes in-depth each modality of treatment, including pharmacotherapy, family therapy, individual and group therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapies. Unlike other works, this book guides clinicians in using multiple modalities, including the sequence of treatments and the types of changes that can be expected from each mode. The discussion of each treatment emphasizes empirically validated therapies, helping clinicians choose modalities that work best for specific patients. In addition, Borderline Personality Disorder: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition, also outlines therapeutic approaches for multiple settings, such as hospitalization, partial hospitalization or day hospital programs, and levels of outpatient care. Complementing the well-organized treatment guide are a series of informative and intriguing sidebars, providing insight into the subjective experience of BPD, addressing myths about therapeutic alliances in BPD, and questioning the efficacy of contracting for safety. Throughout the book, Dr. Gunderson recommends specific do's and don'ts for disclosing the diagnosis, discussing medications, meeting with families, starting psychotherapy, and managing suicidality. A synthesis of theory and practical examples, Borderline Personality Disorder: A Clinical Guide, Second Edition, provides a thorough and practical manual for any clinician working with BPD patients.
