Borderline Personality Disorder can include intense emotional and behavioural challenges for both individuals who exhibits traits and for those with whom they have relationships with. This webinar focuses on providing an increased understanding of BPD from the perspective of all those impacted, including caregivers, family members and those diagnosed. Key strategies are outlined to assist helpers to both consider their own health and well-being and to work towards supporting change in the lives of those with BPD.
