One of the significant challenges facing mental health and community-based services over the last few decades has been responding to the complex needs of people and families living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Although there have been developments in treatments for sufferers, appreciating the impacts on caring relationships along with the consideration and support for families, has remained a marginalised area in mental health care.

This live-stream course will consider the significance and challenges of the relational system in responding to BPD/complex needs. It will provide a space to share our experiences, challenges and learnings. In an attempt at breaking the code surrounding this system, we will consider the value of working mindfully, relationally and collaboratively in supporting sufferers, supporters/carers, family relationships and ourselves.

Drawing from a number of therapeutic traditions, we will sample key practices of Relational Mindfulness, Re-store(y)ing the Conversation-Restarting Reflection, Validating Communications and Relational Limit Setting.

Suitable for

Community counsellors, family, housing, AOD and outreach workers, mental and community health practitioners.
