About Bon Dobbs
I am NOT a doctor or mental health professional. Each of the posts in this blog are based on my personal experiences and research about Borderline Personality Disorder. Please do not take any advice provided as professional or medical advice. If you have BPD or are in a relationship with someone with BPD, I encourage you to seek professional mental health help.
What I am (rather than what I’m not) is a loved one of someone with BPD. My wife has been diagnosed with the disorder and one of my daughters exhibits traits of the disorder. I have been trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy family Skills Training (DBT-FST) and in mentalization techniques. I have attended professional conferences regarding BPD. It was necessary for me to participate fully in my daughter’s therapy, since she is a minor. I have learned, practiced and honed my skills as a supporter of people with BPD.
