Description

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a clinical diagnosis that is often misunderstood. The experience associated with BPD involves intense emotional and behavioural challenges for both the individual and the relationships around them. This workshop's purpose is to increase the understanding of BPD from the perspective of all those impacted, including caregivers, family members and those diagnosed. Participants will be given an opportunity to explore and better understand their own response as helpers when supporting individuals diagnosed with, or exhibiting behaviours associated with BPD. With this increased understanding and new strategies for offering support, participants will be better equipped and more confident in their role of supporting meaningful and manageable change in the lives of those impacted by BPD.

Please note: This workshop is not providing training for clinical therapy - the aim of the training is to provide understanding and practical strategies for a wide range of helpers who support individuals with BPD.
