Friends and Family Group Sessions provide information about the underpinning factors causing Borderline Personality Disorder and helpful insights; along with strategies to address the stress and worry that accompany living with a person with BPD.

This is a six week education and support series that provides:

  • education about the disorder & treatment options
  • effective methods of communicating with your loved one
  • how to disarm anger and validate emotional responses
  • learn how to ‘set limits’ using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy strategies
  • learn coping methods and how to work toward rebuilding safety and trust
  • learn about “radical acceptance”

The series is not for persons with BPD. A separate ‘DBT skills group’ is offered for persons with BPD. The series is not meant to replace individual consultation or therapy.
