STRONGER THAN BPD
The Girl's Guide to Taking Control of Intense Emotions, Drama, and Chaos Using DBT
This book offers practical guidance from the ground level, rather than a therapist's point of view. Debbie Corso
is a popular mental health blogger in recovery from BPD.
Women with borderline personality disorder (BPD) may experience extreme emotional ups and downs that make life difficult to navigate. But with the right tools, they can overcome these symptoms. This book offers practical, evidencebased dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills to help readers manage the intense emotions and negative self-image that can occur with BPD. This easyto-use guide, with personal examples and real-life stories, will help readers apply the fundamentals of DBT—such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness—to their own lives for relief.
Debbie Corso is in recovery from BPD—through hard, consistent work with DBT, she no longer meets the diagnostic criteria. A cofacilitator of online, worldwide DBT groups, she resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. Foreword writer Gillian Galen, PsyD, is director for 3East, an intensive residential DBT program for young women exhibiting self-endangering behaviors and BPD traits, McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate. She resides in Lexington, MA.
