Second Edition of "Lost in the Mirror: An Inside Look at Borderline Personality Disorder" by Richard Moskovitz M.D. is out!
Dr. Moskovitz says "Lost in the Mirror explores the origins of ..."BPD"... and offers its sufferers a framework for beginning to heal. While the first edition focused on the dynamics of the psychotherapeutic relationship that underlies all good treatment, this edition elaborates on the kinds of psychotherapy that are practiced today. It describes mainstream approaches, such as psychoanalytic psychotherapy, cognitive therapy, and behavior therapy, as well as innovative treatments, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)...

For those of you who are new to ..."this book...", I welcome you to learn about what it feels like to live with this painful condition.
