Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Family Connections Leader Training NY Dec 2014
The training itself is free, as always. Participants pay only for their own expenses
I will lead the training, along with Dr. Perry Hoffman, with help from Family Connections leaders (both therapists and family members).
We have arranged for reduced fees at a hotel that is close to the training.
Training begins with dinner together on Friday night (December 12), and continues all day on Saturday and Sunday (December 13-14).
Family Connections (FC) is a free, 12-session group education, individual/family skill and social support program for parents and partners (and other loved ones) of people with BPD and related problems. Groups are led by family members or professionals, and the program is sponsored by the National Education Alliance for BPD (NEA-BPD). Several published studies support its effectiveness, and FC is now available in at least 16 countries.
Please see the attached announcement/flyer for more information, and please forward this information and the flyer to any professionals or family members who might be interested.
