Instant Rental

If Only We Had KNown: A Family Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder video series:
This series documents four families living with Borderline Personality Disorder. Each of the five videos focuses on a critical aspect of BPD: understanding what BPD is; what causes it; how it is diagnosed; how it is treated; and how people can learn to cope with BPD and rebuild fractured relationships. Leading BPD experts and advocates provide the most recent insights and explanations about Borderline Personality Disorder.

If Only We Had Known: A Family Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder was funded by grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. A randomized controlled trial conducted with family members, under the direction of NEA-BPD, showed that people who viewed the five videos increased their knowledge about BPD, felt more empowered, and felt less emotional burden.

    Needs to be translated into Spanish, French Creole, French, Urdu, Arabic, etc.

    Fatima M, PhD

    These flims are a critical visual teaching tool for people with BPD, families, friends, and the community at large– but to be truly useful to all members of society it needs to be translated into Spanish, French Creole, French, Urdu, Arabic, etc.

    I identified with the people who were telling their stories

    Logan

    I found that I already knew a great deal of the information presented in these programs about borderline personality disorder. But I still thought there was a benefit to me in watching the videos because I identified with the people who were telling their stories, even though my story is different.

    Like to see more about medications

    Melissa

    The section that talks about DBT “validation” helped me in my day-to-day dealings with my partner. I would have liked to see more about medications.

    Is it BPD or Bipolar?

    John F, MSW

    Videos perhaps should distinguish between BPD and Bipolar. Many people are diagnosed with Bipolar in error, instead of borderline personality disorder.
