Working Relationally with Borderline Personality Disorder

In stock

Learn about the value of working mindfully, relationally, and collaboratively to support clients living with BPD, supporters/carers, family relationships and ourselves.

One of the significant challenges facing mental health and community-based services over the last few decades has been responding to the complex needs of people and families living with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Although there have been developments in treatments for people living with BPD, appreciating the impacts on caring relationships, along with consideration and support for families, has remained a marginalised area in mental health care.
