Frank Yeomans: Understanding the BPD Mind

Editor’s Note: RethinkBPD is thrilled to launch Conversation Starters, a first in a series of videos to help you, your loved ones, support groups, and colleagues create an open dialogue on Borderline Personality Disorder.

I had a chance to speak with Dr. Frank Yeomans, a specialist in an evidence-base treatment for borderline personality disorder, called Tranference Focused Therapy (TFP). Dr. Yeomans not only provides insight to my very own kind of BPD but also elaborates on the thought patterns of idealism, absoluteness and high standards that often underlie the self-deprecation and self-hatred we, as borderline patients, fall into. Dr. Yeomans has this uncanny ability to talk about things in a way that I can understand and relate to, and I’m thankful to have this opportunity to interview him.

If you would like to know more about Dr. Yeomans and Transference Focused Therapy, you can check his work at the Personalities Disorders Institute and the Personalities Studies Institute.
