Having found great difficulties in engaging with patients with personality disorders, this was a refreshing new take on how to manage patients suffering from the disorders. The book covers the theoretical basis as well forming a practical manual for how these sessions could be given. It most certainly is not a text for a layman, requiring knowledge of attachment theory and building on this with ideas on mentalisation poles, an idea clearly needing to be included in more detail in medical school t Having found great difficulties in engaging with patients with personality disorders, this was a refreshing new take on how to manage patients suffering from the disorders.
It most certainly is not a text for a layman, requiring knowledge of attachment theory and building on this with ideas on mentalisation poles, an idea clearly needing to be included in more detail in medical school teaching as it seems comprehensive enough to explain the actual experiences of patients with personality disorders as well as clearly matching up with other areas such as the study of personality.
The book is structured logically but as someone with little understanding of mentalisation, I would actually recommend reading how the treatment groups work first, which gives an introduction to how mentalisation works first. In this way, the opening theoretical component becomes much more easy to understand. The clinician centred parts are a breath of fresh air for how best to communicate with these patients, often at times completely counterintuitive to the medical model and as a result, almost revelatory at times.

I would recommend this book even if one is not planning to give the therapy themselves I, likely among these but simply to be able to approach these patients differently in an approach that seems to make sense, rather than carrying the stigma that so often comes with these cases.
Dec 27, Colleen Cunningham rated it it was amazing Shelves: psychology. Any psychotherapist interested in how attachment or lack thereof influences the formation of character structure will find this book hopeful reading! Bateman and Fonagy have distilled ways of working with patients that allow the therapist access to formidable options for processing deeply complicated and painful issues with people who have not had a "good enough" attachment experience.
Once again, it provides hope for therapist and patient alike. Feb 24, Ed rated it it was ok. Although a guide and therefore rather tedious to read, this book presents a refreshing approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes empathy. The author's acknowledgment that much psychotherapy with people called borderlines has been harmful provides a good starting point.
Presenting their approach in terms of difficult people to work with is useful in terms of highlighting their techniques. I would only argue that much of what they have to say applies to all psychotherapy. Mar 27, Kiki rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction. I found this a bit repetitive, the authors seemed to be making the same points over and over again but it's worth a read if you're interested in the topic. Not too long.
