The Family Connections Program
START DATE: 15/10/2017
END DATE: 15/04/2018
Family Connections is a research-based twelve-week course for family members with a relative who has either Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or symptoms of the disorder. It was developed by Dr. Alan Fruzzetti and Dr. Perry Hoffman and is taught from a detailed manual created by them.
Offered by trained family members of sufferers and some volunteer therapists at no cost, this course provides knowledge about the disorder and its treatment and teaches Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills, so that family members can both help themselves and implement strategies to cope with and help their loved ones. Since BPD often leaves family members feeling bewildered and alone, this program also provides those who wish with a support group composed of other people who can truly understand the trials and tribulations of living with a relative suffering from the disorder
The group will be taking place on Wednesday evenings at The Place in Ramat Eshkol (Jerusalem).
Space is limited and registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please contact us promptly if you wish to attend one of the sessions and note which one you would prefer.
Please remember that the duration of each meeting is two hours (20:00-22:00) and there will be 12 consecutive meetings. We will start promptly at 20:00, so that we can cover all the material. It is imperative that you commit to attending all the sessions as the material and skills build one upon another.
If you cannot attend because of the time or dates, please let us know, so that we can let you know when future courses open up.
