Yeah so the books I’ve found most helpful are

Judith Herman ‘Trauma and Recovery’

Bessel Van Der Kolk ‘The Body Keeps Score’,

‘Trauma’ Gordon Cambell (the one I probably mentioned)

Marsha Linehans ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Personality Disorder’ is great but very expensive to buy.

Authors that may be of interest are Otto Kernberg, Peter Fonagy and John Gunderson

I’m definetly going to write an article on BPD and work, and also probably a book of ’10 essential reads on BPD’ or something. Just been exceptionally busy, but it’s coming! Hope this helps.
