    From Borderline to Beautiful: Dissociation Demystified.

    From Borderline to Beautiful: Dissociation Demystified.

    Borderline Personality Disorder is no longer considered a chronic illness. You can lead a great life with a sensitive, intense, hyperbolic... or any temperament for that matter with hard work, grit, endurance, tenacity, and the willingness to get uncomfortable. Check out this article for confirmation of this assertion: https://ct.counseling.org/2022/10/not-a-monster-destigmatizing-borderline-personality-disorder/ In this episode, I define and demystify dissociation and offer a first step strategy to understand one's own dissociative profile. The key to better understanding dissociation rests in normalizing it. Check out these resources that were referenced in the podcast: 
    One of the leading psychiatric scholars in the treatment of dissociation is Dr. Elizabeth Howell. In her book The Dissociative Mind, she contends [2]:
    Chronic trauma...that occurs early in life has profound effects on personality development and can lead to the development of dissociative identity disorder (DID), other dissociative disorders, personality disorders, psychotic thinking, and a host of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and substance abuse. In my view, DID is simply an extreme version of the dissociative structure of the psyche that characterizes us all. Dissociation, in a general sense, refers to the rigid separation of parts of experience, including somatic experience, consciousness, affects, perception, identity, and memory.

Very informative

Rose presents science based information that helps make sense of BPD and offers the prospect of living a life worth living. She doesn’t pull any punches. She explains regularly the biology and the social origins of BPD and provides a compassionate roadmap to harnessing big emotions in a doable way. You walk away feeling like you’ve been given a toolbox and a nudge to use the tools. This podcast is excellent for everyone. If you love someone with BPD you’ll learn a lot. Listen regularly so you don’t miss any little gems!

High Quality Information

I was searching for Borderline personality disorder podcasts last year in hope of some help. Rose and her husband deliver, I have spent a lot of time listening to past podcasts and appreciate all of the information that she has put into her show. I highly recommend giving this a listen and using it as a part of a wider toolset on anyones path to recovery. Much love.
