This manual offers therapists and patients a user-friendly guide to general principles of treatment via case examples, therapeutic conversations, and common comorbid problems. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has a suicide rate similar to schizophrenia and major depression, but for many years, it was considered intractable. The Conversational Model is scientifically-based on the research data described in Meares's Dissociation Model of Borderline Personality Disorder, and offers unique treatment protocols for the trauma associated with BPD. Rich with clinical tips and case examples, this book will help a range of mental health professionals working with patients suffering from this debilitating disorder.

About the Author

Russell Meares is a professor emeritus of psychiatry at Sydney University. He lives in Australia.


"Meares and colleagues have produced a truly inspiring and moving guide to conversational model therapy. This book is a profoundly humane account of a theoretically compelling, evidence-based treatment for borderline personality disorder, full of vivid and rich case material. All therapists, no matter their theoretical orientation, will find this book of immeasurable value." -- Else Guthrie, Professor of Psychological Medicine and Medical Psychotherapy, University of Manchester "Full of techniques for building therapeutic relationships with patients . . . this compelling guide is essential reading for those in the psychology and psychiatric fields." -- Book News "[E]ssential reading not only for clinicians working with borderline patients and interested in using the conversational model, but also for any practitioner in the field interested in rethinking the structure of the way they talk with their patients." -- Metapsychology "This book is intended to be read by clinicians, psychologists, or other professionals in healthcare and psychology. [But with] numerous examples and well-organized chapters, this book is easy to understand even for someone who is only beginning his or her career in psychology." -- International Journal of Psychotherapy "These two companion volumes together make a remarkable and original contribution to the theoretical and clinical literature on borderline personality disorder (BPD). . . . [T]his is the most comprehensive, evidence-based, and theoretically integrated model of BPD that I have read." -- Journal of Analytical Psychology "Meares does an excellent job of integrating the relevant brain/neuroscience research . . . There are compelling hypotheses drawn . . . I would recommend these two books to anyone who works with borderline patients. . . . a worthwhile guide for the clinician who is a novice and a good review/extension for the experienced therapist." -- The National Psychologist
