"Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder"
"Skills Training Manual for Treating Borderline Personality Disorder"

DBT is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. It was designed for treating Borderline Personality Disorder. The DBT program consists of both individual therapy and a group skills training class. The skills training covers many things including How to get what you want, How to say no, What emotions are called (one of my favorites), and Mindfullness (a confusing, to me, idea that asks you to "stay in the moment" and "be fully aware of the present").

I started with the Skills Training Manual. The introduction describes who BPD people are. I read that part and said "Wow. Finally somebody knows about me." It was very powerful to be finally understood. I told my CBT therapist about the book and she said "No other patient has brought me a skills training manual, and a good one at that." I attended a 6 month session of skills training (you are supposed to do 12 months, and it probably would have been helpful - then maybe I would know what Mindfullness is) and I found it very helpful. I read both the book and the skill training manual when I am feeling lost or misunderstood.

I recommend it highly.
