Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a diagnosis mired in stigma & hopelessness. Common beliefs are that people with this disorder cannot have positive relationships, that they exhaust everyone they encounter & that they will never be able to be contributing members of a community. This workshop is designed to challenge those assumptions, to examine the experiences of individuals with BPD & people providing services, to share tools that can be used in supportive relationships & to discuss self-care for support persons within these often challenging, but also rewarding, relationships.
This introductory course is designed for staff at all levels in behavioral health & human services agencies.
Attendance of the full session as well as completion of an evaluation are required.
