“Unlike most clinicians, Daniel Lobel understands that the majority of people with BPD do not think they have anything wrong with them and therefore do not seek treatment. When this is the case, family members need specific information and tools that are hard to find. In this book, Lobel takes these family members from helplessness to hopefulness.” —Randi Kreger, author, Stop walking on eggshells, stop walking on eggshells for parents, The Essential Family Guide to borderline personality disorder
“After reading books written by Dr. Lobel, including his latest one, When a Loved One Has Borderline Personality Disorder, I’ve gained the clarity I had been missing. This latest book is an incredible guide, almost like a pocket-therapist in some aspects for me. A truly remarkable accomplishment for which there can never be enough thanks.” —J. Marlow
