    This is not just A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed this is THE Guide for the Newly Diagnosed There is enough information that you learn something new on every page, but not so much information that you feel overwhelmed Each chapter features a helpful summary The authors are compassionate and honest This is the most hopeful I have felt since my diagnosis.

    Overall, the book isn t bad However, because I m already a nurse and have worked with psych patients, I already knew most of the information in the book It was a good refresher but it was obviously written for someone who is newly diagnosed with BPD But even for someone who is newly diagnosed, I still thought it was too basic.The style of the book overall was good It describes what BPD is, it describes various treatments that include talk therapy and medication therapy I did like that it wa Overall, the book isn t bad However, because I m already a nurse and have worked with psych patients, I already knew most of the information in the book It was a good refresher but it was obviously written for someone who is newly diagnosed with BPD But even for someone who is newly diagnosed, I still thought it was too basic.The style of the book overall was good It describes what BPD is, it describes various treatments that include talk therapy and medication therapy I did like that it was recommended that talk therapy be included if one is also in medication therapy In my opinion, it s crucial for every patient with a mental health disorder receiving mediation therapy to seek talk therapy.Some of the things I would have liked to be included in the book wasdescription of the different medications Almost to the degree that they different types of talk therapy were described Not to the degree of a drug guide perhaps but just a bitdetail of each one instead I would have likedescription of the symptoms,information about onset of symptoms and when would be a good time for someone to seek help I would have likecase study examples where the patients are NOT self harming or suicidal as well As it is one symptom of nine, and one needs to have five of the nine, there must be many case studies available where patients don t have this symptom at all.I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for a honest review One other thing I will include in the notes to the publisher and author which I think people should know in advance is that this book comes in PDF form and not an ePub form I personally read everything on my iPhone where PDF books are difficult to read even after increasing the font One still has to increase the size of the page with every page turn which slows down the reading process I was able to convert the PDF to an ePub file However, the file converted to a badly formatted ePub book It might be good if NetGalley actually increased the options for the readers or of NetGalley made it so all books are in ePub form for non Kindle users.I give it three of five stars For me, three stars signifies a rating of Good

    If you want a quick understanding of BPD, without being overwhelmed with the internet and it s oh so official doctor s, then this book is for you.The tone is compassionate and kind There are plenty of sources, so you know it s not opinion, but scientifically studied answers The book covers everything from symptoms, myths, treatment, and the effect on your loved ones.The most helpful part is the discussion on emotions and how to effectively regulate them.Informative, but not overwhelming

    this basically comes down to the fact that i m not the target audience i don t have bpd but someone i know does so this was me trying to get to understand that diagnosis better probably helpful for a person newly diagnosed, but i can t help that it felt really repetitive with only 135 pages i also found myself skipping sections cause it didn t really pertain to me.

  5. Erika Powers Erika Powers says:

    Liked the brevity Good review of Linehan s therapy Good for starters Overall it s probably good but having read a lot about BPD already, I didn t get much out of this book.
