ABOUT Family Connections™
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.
The Family Connections™ program is provided in Canada free of charge by The Sashbear Foundation. The Family Connections™ program was developed by practicing clinicians/researchers (Drs. Fruzzetti and Hoffman) and modified in consultation with family members. It is coordinated internationally by NEABPD.
In Nova Scotia, Family Connections™ acknowledges support in kind from Annapolis Valley Families Caring for Loved Ones with an Eating Disorder.
