Motivate your BPD clients with values-based treatment! This 16-week ACT protocol will help you get started today.

As you know, clients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and emotion dysregulation often struggle with negative beliefs about themselves-beliefs that can lead to feelings of shame, problems with personal relationships, and dangerous behaviors. And while dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is the standard treatment for BPD, more and more, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has shown promising results when treating BPD clients by helping them focus on their core values and forgiveness.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder provides a comprehensive program for delivering ACT to clients with BPD. Using the session-by-session, 16-week protocol in this professional guide, you can help clients work through the main driver behind BPD-experiential avoidance-and gain the psychological flexibility needed to balance their emotions and begin healing. You can use this protocol on its own, or in conjunction with treatment.

With this guide, you'll learn to target the fundamental causes of BPD for better treatment outcomes and happier, healthier clients.

For forty years, New Harbinger Publications has brought readers effective, scientifically sound self-help books that deal with a range of topics in psychology, health, and personal growth. Launched by psychologist Matthew McKay and writer Patrick Fanning in 1973, New Harbinger pioneered a style of self-help book that has become the standard of today. Fanning and McKay believed that the job of a self-help book was to teach readers skills they could use to significantly improve the quality of their lives. These books might inspire and enlighten in their own way, but they had to offer real tools for real change. McKay and Fanning’s writing partnership has yielded a dozen highly successful titles which have established the model for New Harbinger’s other books.
