175 Borderline Personality Disorder with Steven Dawson, LCSW (Part 2)
Steven Dawson is back, this time to talk about, as requested, borderline personality disorder. Steven, as always, graced us with his kind and radical view of mental illness and treatment. This is part two of a two-part series.
In This Episode
In part 2 of our interview with Steven Dawson about Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Steven answers questions submitted by our listeners, including:
- How can someone get accurately diagnosed with and treated for BPD when it’s so often misunderstood and maligned, even by professionals and especially general physicians?
- Does BPD ever go into “remission” or is it a persistent condition?
- How can I be a good ally to those with BPD?
