New Borderline Disorder Book About Recovery


Although borderline personality disorder is treatable, the gap between remission and recovery is a large one — a divide that research is just beginning to tackle. Until the evidence is there, what can we do? What makes a small percentage of over 16 million Americans with BPD recover, leading "lives worth living," while others plateau, stuck in a revolving door of hospitalizations? The book, BPD and the Quest for Recovery searches to understand what makes recovery the exception and how to make it the norm.

Written by a woman diagnosed with the illness, Amanda Wang will uncover the world of recovery through scientific research, clinical anecdotes and personal patient stories. BPD and the Quest for Recovery brings those living with BPD, families and loved ones, as well as clinicians and researchers along for an investigative ride, helping shed light to the disorder. It will discuss:

  • What BPD recovery looks like scientifically and anecdotally.
  • Who the likely candidates are and what characteristics they share.
  • What makes some patients recover from BPD while others plateau.
  • Whether BPD recovery can be taught.

BPD and the Quest for Recovery will also take readers beyond traditional clinical/self-help books — as well as strict memoirs — by bridging these two spectrums together. This book is not only the author's personal quest in understanding recovery but of other individuals as well. Some will even be showing us what being given a second chance means and what they have done about it. From New Haven, Connecticut, to Seattle, Washington, BPD and the Quest for Recovery embarks on a shared journey — in hopes of rising above the challenges of a suffering people.
