The next "Continuing Connections" workshop, focusing on “Problem Management” is being offered November 4, 2017 at 9:30 am to noon at the Royal Ottawa Health Center.

ON-BPD responds to increasing demand for family support

[Ottawa, ON | 15 October 2017]

The Ottawa Network for Borderline Personality Disorder (ON-BPD) launched its first local Family Connections leader training on September 8-10, 2017.

Hosted by the National Education Alliance (NEA-BPD) in San Francisco, local “Ottawans” received the training via video-conferencing, along with other participants located in six cities across North America. Most of the volunteers who dedicated their weekend for the training are graduates of the Family Connections course and family members of a loved one who struggles with BPD or has difficulty regulating their emotions. Having completed the weekend Course Leader training, they are now ready to co-facilitate the 12-week Family Connections course. Also, among the volunteer trainees were dedicated professionals from The Royal Ottawa, Queensway-Carleton hospital, and Cornwall area, all working in the mental health field.

In short, ON-BPD is stepping up to the demand!

ON-BPD is recruiting new Course Leaders and will be hosting a Family Connections Course Leader training course in Ottawa on September 8-10, 2017.

ON-BPD has a specific need for bilingual (English-French) course leaders. Those interested in participating in this training session should submit the application by the deadline of Friday, August 11, 2017. Note that there is no charge for participation in this training and that meals are included.
