April’s Sanctuary meeting was held on line (that way, we complied with COVID 19 restrictions).

We had 27 members join the on line meeting which went well despite a few people who had issues like microphones not working at their end.

Together we watched a video and afterwards we discussed it as a group.

The video was a recording of a webinar, presented by Emily Edwards, a psychologist living in New York. Emily has a family member with BPD, and is also a Family Connections Leader. She spoke to family members about Surviving COVID-19 with a loved one who has BPD or emotion dysregulation and then answered their questions.

For those who missed the meeting, here is the link so you can watch it and get the advice of how to help your loved one and yourself cope emotionally with the anxiety of Covid-19:  Surviving COVID-19 with a loved one who has BPD or emotion dysregulation

Before our next meeting, Robyn is offering to help members get started with on line meetings, by running through a practice session.  More about this later.
