Managing Borderline Personality Disorder – Being Well with Rick Hanson

We all have good days and bad days. Our mood naturally trends up and down in response to the events of our constantly changing worlds.

But some people change more frequently, and are hit harder by change than others. On today’s episode, Dr. Hanson and Forrest continue their series on “Who Am I” by exploring at a particularly intense, and surprisingly common, version of this: Borderline Personality Disorder.

Today’s episode is a bit longer and more technical than normal. I hope you stick with it, but feel free to skip around!
