• Hard to Love Understanding and Overcoming Male Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) causes individuals to have extreme difficulty regulating their emotions. BPD in men is often misdiagnosed and typically leads to either no treatment (or worse, jail time) or the wrong treatment. Author Nowinski identifies the symptoms and causes, as well as treatment targeted to men who suffer from BPD. Anecdotes and research findings are included.

“I can’t wait to give Hard to Love to both male and female clients involved in difficult relationships! Nowinski adroitly and sensitively integrates theory, clinical examples, and pragmatic strategies for both therapists and clients in this well-organized and engagingly written book. His sensitivity to gender issues and an under-recognized clientele is a huge contribution to the field of mental health.”

“In Hard to Love, Dr. Nowinski explains a complex issue affecting men in a way that is at once easy to understand, interesting to read, and even, at times, entertaining. This book encourages men to be honest about themselves while simultaneously offering hope and help not only to the men, themselves, but to the people who love them.”

“Dr. Nowinski’s knack for making complex clinical concepts clear comes through in his new book, Hard to Love. He remains a master of interweaving vignettes and cases to illustrate the clinical conditions that fly below the radar of many clinicians. His stories inject life into the textbook criteria and give the reader a new perspective on the subject. As with breast cancer in men and heart disease in women, many men with borderline personality suffer needlessly due to misdiagnoses. What’s more, Dr. Nowinski reminds us that persons with borderline personality don’t suffer alone. Everyone around a person with borderline personality disorder seems to suffer, and they will continue to suffer until someone identifies the core problem. Thank you, Dr. Nowinski, for a fresh perspective that will resonate with clinicians and people from all walks of life. Yes, men with borderline personality are difficult to love, but they are not impossible to love. I find it difficult not to love this book and nearly impossible to put down once you pick it up!”
