If Only We Had Known: A Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder.
This series was funded by a 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.
“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…”

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?
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.
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.
Daniel W, PsyD –
Helping families to understand biological and social roots of Borderline Personality Disorder may decrease guilt and desperation.
