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.

NEABPD Logo

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.
