Understanding Borderline Personality Disorder:
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex, controversial and widely misunderstood mental illness. Millions of people – and their loved ones – struggle with BPD, yet few understand what it is.

People who have BPD may exhibit uncontrolled anger, have troubled relationships, intensely fear abandonment, act impulsively, abuse drugs or alcohol, harm themselves, attempt suicide, experience profound loneliness or, at times, feel detached from the world around them.

This program, the first in a series of five on Borderline Personality Disorder, explains what BPD is through the personal experiences of four families who have a relative with BPD.

Experts In This Program.
These stories are further informed by insights and commentary from leading experts in the field of BPD including:

Marsha Linehan, PhD – developer of Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Alan Fruzzetti, PhD – co-developer of the NEA-BPD Family Connections education program.
Alec Miller, PsyD – director of the Adolescent Depression and Suicide Program, at Montefiore Medical Center.

    Absolutely wonderful. The people in these videos explain what it’s like to have Borderline Personality Disorder better than I ever could. An excellent resource for families.

  2. 5 out of 5 Original, absorbing, highly instructive

    John Gunderson, MD- Harvard Medical School, McLean Hospital

    An original, absorbing, highly instructive, and clinically rich series of DVDs about Borderline Personality Disorder. By vividly capturing the pain of having this disorder and the pain it compels in those who love them, this series creates a sympathetic portrait of a condition that too often generates hostility. It will prove extraordinarily useful for training, for borderline patients themselves, and most particularly for their families.

  3. 5 out of 5 The programs help families

    Brian A. Palmer, MD – Mayo Clinic

    This series documents the challenging road traveled by families impacted by Borderline Personality Disorder. The programs help families find the hope that comes with skill and knowledge by integrating expert comments and the “real life” wisdom of families who have learned to balance limits and validation

  4. 5 out of 5 These videos will be of real and invaluable help to many, many people.

    Steve Tuber, PhD – City University of New York

    The video is beautifully done and very powerful. The overall effect of the expert’s commentary interwoven with the patient’s was even more powerful. You’re producing an enormously valuable ‘document’, one that I think will be of real and invaluable help to many, many people. Thank you so much for allowing me to watch it and benefit from it.

  5. 5 out of 5 This is an important source of information

    Perry Hoffman, PhD – President, NEABPD

    If you are a family member who has a loved one diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, this is an important source of information for you. Open and honest discussions of BPD by individuals and families who have struggled with the disorder and survived offer unique perspectives on the disorder. Leading BPD researchers and clinicians share their expertise to complement the personal journeys

  6. 5 out of 5 Best explanation of the disorder

    Jim and Diane Hall

    Your video series is so valuable for so many venues – our families here in Houston think they’re the best explanation of the disorder they have been exposed to. They said – real people, beautifully filmed and explained, and professionally supported’. The best teaching tools are used – sight, sound, and people they can relate to and actually feel like they know as the series concludes. The human element and key points reinforce the fact that this is real disorder and much can be done to help those afflicted and their families!

  7. 4 out of 5 I have become much more flexible.

    Jo

    I changed my reactions and interactions because of what I saw in the videos. I have fewer “expectations” and have become much more flexible in our relationship and in life. I am at peace with her and accept her for who she is. It’s not the relationship that I had envisioned when we got married, but it is better today than it was a couple of years ago.

  8. 5 out of 5 Everyone was riveted to the videos

    Carl Dunn – #BPDchat

    There was a terrific response; everyone was riveted to the videos. I believe every class member felt changed for the better after watching the whole series. I think it helped accelerate the transformation in understanding and coping.

  9. 5 out of 5 I learned that I wasn't alone

    Spouse

    Because I learned more about others in this situation (both those with BPD and family members), I learned that I wasn’t alone, as well as a better understanding of what I might expect to experience. That helped me to be more understanding, which reduced my BPD spouse’s stress and anxieties.

  10. 5 out of 5 I care about my daughter

    Fran

    Watching the videos helped my daughter to understand that I care about her disease and want to help her get better. . I was interested and tried to help her previously however I think that the videos were a key part of her understanding my desire to help her get better . It opened up more communication about the stigma of mental health and also an opportunity to share with others about borderline personality disorder. She sees evidence that I am interested in helping her to get better.

  11. 5 out of 5 I could better relate to my parent

    Child of borderline parent

    The validation I felt watching the videos was important. As a child of a borderline parent I needed validation and outside explanations to understand the events happening were not my fault or caused by me. Then I could better understand, and relate to my parent.
