Borderline Personality Disorder in Adolescents: a Complete Guide to Understanding and Coping When Your Adolescent Has BPD. Blaise Aguirre, $22.50

Borderline Personality Disorder in Adolescents offers parents, caregivers, and adolescents themselves a complete understanding of this complex and tough-to-treat disorder. Dr. Aguirre describes recent advancements in treatments and brings into focus what we do and donít know about this condition.

Dissociation in Traumatized Children and Adolescents: Theory and Clinical Interventions. Edited by Sandra Wieland, $79.50

Dissociation in Traumatized Children and Adolescents is a groundbreaking text for the study of dissociation in young people. Eight unique and compelling case studies present many aspects of working with traumatized children who dissociate — trauma processing, attachment work, work with the family, interactions with the community — and give frank analysis of the difficulties clinicians encounter in various therapeutic situations and how and why they arrived at particular therapeutic decisions. While the book includes intensive analysis of each author’s theoretical framework as well as that of dissociation in general, it also shows clinicians, in the most practical terms, how to translate the theories of dissociation into action.

Splitting: Protecting Yourself While Divorcing Someone with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Bill Eddy & Randi Kreger, $19.99

Divorce is difficult under the best of circumstances. When your spouse has borderline personality disorder (BPD), narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), or is manipulative, divorcing can be especially complicated. While people with these tendencies may initially appear convincing and even charming to lawyers and judges, you know better — many of these "persuasive blamers" leverage false accusations, attempt to manipulate others, launch verbal and physical attacks, and do everything they can to get their way.

SPLITTING is your legal and psychological guide to safely navigating a high-conflict divorce from an unpredictable spouse. Written by Bill Eddy, a family lawyer, therapist, and divorce mediator, and Randi Kreger, coauthor of the BPD classic STOP WALKING ON EGGSHELLS, this book includes all of the critical information you need to work through the process of divorce in an emotionally balanced, productive way.
