Borderline Personality Disorder is a heavily stigmatized disorder because the person is often perceived as unpredictable and confusing. One day they may appear ready for treatment and change, and the next they may reject everything related to it. This often leaves friends and professionals feeling frustrated and the person feeling misunderstood. However, a solid understanding of the roots of this disorder can help us develop a careful approach, good boundaries, and skillful communication. This class focuses on these elements and works through a communication protocol to help with difficult conversations.
