Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious psychological and psychosocial disorder where people have extreme difficulties regulating their emotions. Problems include:

 

  • Intense and volatile emotions (such as shame, anger, sadness or anxiety)
  • Chaotic relationships
  • Impulsivity
  • Unstable sense of self
  • Suicide attempts or self-harm
  • Fears of abandonment
  • Chronic feelings of emptiness

 

About the Course

Family Connections is a research-based, 12-weeek program designed to provide parents, spouses, adult children and adult siblings with the knowledge, skills and support to help them better understand and interact with a relative who has Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

 

The format of the sessions allows group participants to obtain basic information about the disorder, acquire and practice skills based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and enjoy an open and supportive forum for discussion.

Research documents those family members who participate in the Family Connections course experience a decrease in depression, burden, and grief and an increase in empowerment.
