Family ConnectionsTM Courses in Alberta

ABOUT Family ConnectionsTM

Family Connections is an evidence-based program providing education, skills training, and support for people who are in a relationship with someone struggling with BPD or emotion dysregulation. it is a peer program led by trained group facilitators who are family members and who have taken the course themselves. Family Connections provides: current information and research on BPD, emotion dysregulation and on family functioning; individual coping skills based on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT); family skills; and group support that builds an ongoing network for family members. 

Family Connections is open to anyone 18 years of age and older who has a loved one struggling with mental health issues. The course is not for those who are struggling, only for the family members supporting them.
