Change Your Brain, Change Your Life
Author: by Daniel G. Amen M.D
Publisher: Harmony; Revised, Expanded ed. edition (November 3, 2015)
Paperback: 480 pages
ISBN-10: 110190464X
ISBN-13: 978-1101904640

I'm not a doctor, but I read this book and was equally fascinated by it. In fact, I took my then 15-year-old daughter to Dr. Amen's clinic in D.C. in April 2016. (My daughter is interested in science and biology, so the SPECT scans and the visual results of the biofeedback resonate with her.) She did not see Dr. Amen, she saw Dr. Annibali (who has his own book) and her SPECT scans indicate her diagnosis. Dr. Annibali recommended bio-feedback (among other things), and that's been helping her but it's not been a full solution. If we lived in D.C., I would still be taking her to the Amen Clinic for outpatient therapy. Although I think this book is very helpful, it's not as helpful for caregivers as it is for the patient themselves, as this is the kind of work that requires intrinsic motivation, although I'm sure every individual who reads it (BPD or not) can benefit from his work.

A must read in my opinion. Though not directly related to BPD (although you can see with the daughter how these traits can develop based on family systems) it gave me the most insight into myself than I have gotten from any other book. I highly recommend it as a possible way to learn so much about yourself.

“Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.”
