"Daniel Fox has bridged the gap between the classic understanding and contemporary application of the authoritative findings concerning personality pathology. In his latest book, Fox has unraveled the dual construct of personality development toward more accurate identification and effective intervention--now and for future generations. The inclusion of the information addressing online behavioral expression is timely and crucial for a culture driven by social media. Online users have practical tools to alert them to unsuspected predators, and/or dating prospects who may have underlying personality pathology. The academic, mental health, and social communities will be forever indebted to Fox."

"When working with clients who present with personality disorders, it is sometimes difficult for our clients to grasp the concept of a personality disorder, and even more difficult for them to acquire, execute, and maintain the skills necessary to successfully navigate their everyday lives. As a psychologist and mental health professional, I am always seeking better and more efficient resources that assist my clients on their journey in therapy, as well as providing some structure when developing treatment plans. Well, I hit the jackpot with this resource! Fox has done a marvelous job creating a resource that really helps to better facilitate this work! This workbook is user friendly and can either be used while someone is currently in treatment with a mental health professional, or independently attempting to improve their lives. This workbook does an excellent job breaking down the who, what, when, where, and how of navigating the diagnosis of BPD, and will definitely be an excellent addition to my referral resources for both clinicians and patients!"

"Daniel Fox has taken his extensive knowledge of this challenging clinical population and has synthesized the literature with his own therapeutic experience and style. The Borderline Personality Disorder Workbook challenges the individual with this disorder to change through a series of self-examination exercises of one's beliefs and behaviors, and why these behaviors are maintained. Through a systematic process of exploring what BPD is, to understanding the nature of the problem and acting on what has been learned, the person with BPD is guided to conquering their conflicts and building and eventually maintaining a new self. The workbook may also be used by mental health professionals working with persons with the challenge of BPD."
