Reckless and impulsive behavior, recurrent suicidal behavior, and anger management issues are just a few of the symptoms exhibited by people with BPD, so it is no wonder that their loved ones often seek outside help for salvaging their relationships. When Stop Walking on Eggshells was first published, it gave new hope to thousands of people with friends and family members suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD). This second edition has been fully updated and includes new revisions that make the book even easier to read. Stop Walking on Eggshells, Second Edition, features shorter chapters, bulleted lists, and updated information on medications. The new edition also teaches readers a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skill called validation that can help them compassionately, but firmly, set boundaries with their loved ones. Readers will discover the different methods clinicians use to treat BPD and learn how they can help their loved one find the best treatment method and therapist.

          Stop Walking on Eggshells makes good on its promise to restore the lives of people in close relationships with someone diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It is a rich guide to understanding and coping with the reactions aroused in others by troubling BPD behaviors that negatively impact relationships. Readers will find this book very useful and beneficial. -- Nina W. Brown, Ed.D., professor and Eminent Scholar at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, author of Children of the Self-Absorbed This book is the absolute go-to guide for my clients who are dealing with a loved one with borderline personality disorder. Readable and thorough, it strikes a perfect balance of practical advice and emotional sensitivity. This book has helped so many people break through their sense of confusion and isolation by helping them to name, understand, and respond to the difficulties of this complex and misunderstood disorder. -- Daniel E. Mattila, M.Div., LCSW
