Marsha Linehan, PhD - If Only We Had Known: A Family Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder.

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.

    Good overview of Borderline Personality Disorder

    Martha

    A good overview of Borderline Personality Disorder that showed us that now we need more information about the skills and interventions that we could use to deal with our loved one who has Borderline.

    Nurses need to know

    Megan, RN-PMH

    Someone should make a special series for psych-mental health nurses – how to work with people coping with BPD. How to work with the families of people with BPD.

    A person with BPD has very little control over their negative behaviors

    Michael, person with BPD

    I am thankful this showed the truth- that a person with Borderline has very little control over their negative behaviors and how their family’s support can lead toward recovery

    Validation and Empathy

    Jean from NC

    In the (NAMI) Family to Family Course, there’s a class on Empathy. I use Empathy with my daughter and it works very well –the validation example in the video about treatment was very good. It reminded me of Empathy and I know that works.

    Best Thing was the causes of behaviors

    Andrew -husband

    I think the best thing I learned was what causes some of the behaviors that upset me, and maybe how to cope with and communicate about those behaviors.

    Not doing so well.

    Emmy with BPD

    Seeing people who have BPD and who are doing well is very good for those of us who aren’t doing so well.

    May decrease guilt and desperation

    Daniel W, PsyD

    Helping families to understand biological and social roots of Borderline Personality Disorder may decrease guilt and desperation.

    A lot the of suffering is because of the stigma of BPD

    Patrick

    I think there should one geared to professionals as well– a lot the of suffering is because of the stigma of BPD and the ignorance of professionals who should be helping but more often are hindering progress.

    What is normal adolescent behavior

    George L

    For those of us who have children with the disorder it is difficult to know what is normal adolescent behavior and what is not. This helped explain it.

    How about Spanish?

    Sebastián, LCSW

    We are a visual society and I see how valuable viewing these DVDs has been to my clients. I would very much like to expand the number of people I could offer this resource to – how about Spanish?

    Understand a little better

    Dad

    I think I understand my son a little better now. I liked that there were therapists in the programs that explained things and talked about how to handle different situations.

    So much drama

    Harry – a brother

    Matt (Ej’s brother) gave me a lot of hope that things could be better with my brother. It is very hard living in the same house with him, so much drama all the time. But I see that it’s not all his fault.

    The plethora of ‘diagnosis’ our children get

    Stephanie

    During the part about the plethora of ‘diagnosis’ our children get at an early age (ADHD, ODD, OCD, separation anxiety, etc.) our whole family, including our daughter, kept nodding our heads. Now to see all these misdiagnosis were probably childhood indicators of Borderline is somewhat distressing. Why isn’t there more information in the professional community about Borderline.

    Professionals need to see these

    Jose

    “Professionals” need to see these videos, too! There’s a lot of “professionals” out there that don’t give out the right information.

    Asset for information and support

    Johnny B

    I thought the programs were an asset for information and support. The therapist’s gave me a better understanding of bpd and treatments.
