Kenneth L. Artiss provides a review of the fascinating but difficult aspect of human behavior--the borderline personality disorder. Artiss highlights the manner in which some people repeat their mistakes over and over and do not learn from experience. Their mistakes range from small, repetitive follies to grave, personal disasters. Such people pretend and "act" to an outrageous degree, threaten others, and easily become addicted. Artiss defines the disorder, explains how it develops, describes the pathology it causes, and discusses treatment of the disorder.
Written by an experienced psychiatrist, Mistake Making avoids jargon and includes sections detailing stuttering and psychotherapy. Mistake Making should be read by practicing psychotherapists, mental-health practitioners and students, and personnel managers. Mistake Making was originally published in 1993 by Psychiatric Books.
