Reviews

"Schema Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder is well translated, clearly written, and easy to read.
The straightforward instructions for using this method are broken down into chapters describing the
therapeutic relationship; experiential, cognitive, and behavioral techniques; and specific methods for
treating the various schema modes, which include detached protector, abandoned/abused child,
angry/impulsive child, punitive parent, and healthy adult. The techniques are well illustrated throughout."




"This is an excellent and comprehensive guide."
