  • 0 NP0021 The 6 Most Challenging Issues in TherapyTreating Clients with Borderline Personality Disorder 07.26.2012 16:14
    I greatly appreciated this session. I especially appreciated Dr. Schwartz's normalizing, respectful view of his clients who struggle with borderline personality disorder. I tend to think of a diagnosis as a form of narrative - and a narrative in therapy is useful if and when it reduces blame and shame, sheds light, and facilitates effective action. This session did this for me with the term "borderline personality disorder." Thanks. I look forward to learning more.

    Thanks, Drs Simon and Doherty for a helpful discussion. I will definitely share this information with my consultation group I especially appreciate the respect for the people who come to us for healing and consultation, and the limits of our power and control in their lives. The place where I have the most difficulty with this personally is when it concerns teenagers. This is where I find it most challenging to find the line between their autonomy, and my responsibiity as an adult in their lives. How do you handle teens differently, if at all?
