Books about DBT worth a look:

When it comes to Borderline Personality Disorder, there are lot of harmful, misinforming books out there. I think a good basic rule of thumb is this: if the book has a judgmental tone, put it down and find something else.  We are all working our best to get through this life, and no one is trying to mess with us for the sake of messing with us.  So books that use words like manipulative are to be avoided.  The mental health community is responsible for a kind of bigotry when it comes to people suffering this disorder.  So, be a careful researcher!

Good therapists are hard to find.  In my opinion, one should try to minimize the importance of geography when shopping.  It's like finding a dentist: you want a good one and you'll drive to get there.  So here are some folks I know either personally or professionally:
