Daniel S. Lobel, PhD, is a psychologist with a private practice in Katonah, NY. He is assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and has given classes at both State University of New York (SUNY) at Purchase and the New York State College of Optometry. He has written chapters in many textbooks and contributes frequently as a guest blogger on the Psychology Today website.
"Daniel S. Lobel has crafted a practical guide to help parents deal
with an illness that is extremely difficult to treat. He offers
realistic, positive, and compassionate suggestions to maximize
success in parenting a daughter with BPD, and addresses not only
her struggles but those of the parents and family as well. It is a
valuable tool for those of us who are trying to understand the
challenges we face."
"Daniel S. Lobel nails it. In clear language, he vividly depicts the struggles a family undergoes when a daughter has borderline personality disorder (BPD). Do not think drug treatments alone will suffice, or that a magical moment will change everything. What Lobel makes transparent is how necessary sound psychology is and how, properly applied, we now know enough to expect a happy outcome. Do not be intimidated by psychiatry or your daughter. This book masterfully lays out how to proceed and what is necessary to grasp."
--Arnold Wilson, PhD, training and supervising psychoanalyst at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR), and lecturer in psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons
"If your child--whether young or grown--suffers from BPD, you are suffering as well. That's because this problem affects the entire family, and requires specialized parenting skills. Using case examples and an easy-to-understand approach, Daniel S. Lobel has produced a handbook that can change countless lives."
