Getting Off the Emotional Roller Coaster:
10-Week Skill Building Workshop for Families & Friends of People with
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Bipolar Disorder or Major Depression
(often Co-occurring with Substance Use Disorders)
When someone we love has a disorder that affects their mood and ability to control their emotions and impulses, life can feel like an “emotional roller coaster” with ups, downs, twists and turns that can be overwhelming, draining and sometimes scary. This workshop will help you respond, not just react, so you can get yourself and your life back under better control. You will learn key information about these 3 disorders, as well as the key skills of SELF-CARE, EMOTION REGULATION, EMOTIONAL VALIDATION, LIMIT SETTING & CRISIS MANAGEMENT.
We will use interactive discussions, presentations with slides, guest speakers, demonstration role plays, practice exercises and homework assignments that combine “lived experience” and evidence-based tools. Classes will be co-facilitated by Scott Johnston, M. Ed. (clinician and educator), Denice Buzzetto, CPS (a person in recovery), and a family member/graduate of this workshop
WHEN? 10 Monday evenings, 7:00 to 9:00 PM
