Humber Family Connections

Family ConnectionsTM (FC) is a free, 12-session course focusing on education, skills training and support for people who are supporting a person with difficulties associated with emotion dysregulation or what may be labelled Borderline or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder.

The Team

FC in Humber is co-ordinated by the Complex Emotional Needs Service, and provides online and in-person groups on various days/at various times, underpinned by principles of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). The programme is co-led by clinicians and people with lived experience of supporting others in non-professional relationships with the difficulties posed by emotion dysregulation. All facilitators have been trained by the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEA-BPD) in the United States, who developed the FC programme.
