About Debbie Corso

Debbie Corso is a mental health blogging pioneer, courageously chronicling her journey while lighting a torch to provide hope to a severely emotionally wounded community. She has a BS from New York Institute of Technology in Interdisciplinary Studies in English, Communications, and Behavioral Science, as well as a certificate in Early Childhood Development.

She is in recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder. Through hard, consistent work with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), she no longer meets the criteria to be considered "Borderline."

Her work as an Intake Coordinator and Case Manager at a non-profit organization, working closely with children at risk for abuse and neglect, was the catalyst that propelled her to document and share her powerful journey through her blog and hopeful, encouraging books on overcoming the oppressive symptoms of BPD.

She currently co-facilitates online, worldwide DBT groups with therapist Alicia Paz at www.DBTPath.com

She lives in sunny Northern California in the San Francisco Bay Area.

We don't have to be defined by the past
A truly inspiring book full of helpful tips and reminders for anyone on their own recovery journey.

Review by: Joyce Savage on March 01, 2013 :
I devoured this book by the next day! I've been reading a lot about BPD lately, but in her book, I found things that I have never heard anywhere else. I hope that many more people order this book for themselves, loved ones, organizations, EVERYONE! We need to raise awareness of BPD and get rid of the stigma surrounding it. I hope to one day write my own story. I'm so inspired by you Debbie! Keep up the good work with your book and your blog. Keep writing and reaching out to people!

I recently finished reading Healing From Borderline Personality Disorder and subsequently bought and gave away five copies to well deserving followers on Twitter. That's how much I was impressed by this humble but deeply touching and well written book.
This young woman, Debbie Corso, authors a wonderful blog about this disorder and almost more importantly conveys within it her knowledge and experience of the best known treatment for it, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, commonly known as DBT. An absolute must read for anyone with BPD or their families and friends. 5 stars.

I downloaded it an hour ago and so far I am very impressed! I've been following your blog for a while now and I find you to be so uplifting and helpful. I, too, am currently writing a book on BPD and it's nice to see others offering hope to those of us that are suffering and wanting to heal. I'm truly grateful for your contributions each and every day on your blog and now with this book. I've read so many self-help books but it's just different (and so much better) when it comes from someone who also goes through the same things. Thank you for your constant encouragement and motivation to get better, Debbie!
