A lively discussion about maintaining relationships when a family member is affected by borderline personality disorder or emotion dysregulation.
We watched a video together: Staying connected for Families Carers of Borderline Personality Disorder by Project Air Strategy.
Here is a short introduction to validation: The importance of Validation for Mental Health by Andrea Schklar, a DBT Counsellor who treats individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and individuals struggling with emotion regulation, self harm, and/or frequent suicide attempts.
