Please join Hope for BPD on Thursday, July 19th 2012 at 8:00 pm EDT (-5 GMT) when we host an hour-long discussion with author and speaker Merri Lisa Johnson, PhD about healthy ways to cope with grief and loss.
Dr. Johnson is the author of Girl in Need of a Tourniquet: Memoir of a Borderline Personality and is the Director for Women's and Gender Studies at University of South Carolina Upstate.
Lisa and Amanda will be talking about how people with BPD cope with feelings of grief, loss, and rejection. While a fear of abandonment is central to the experience of someone diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, the way we approach and resolve these emotions and experiences can make the difference between moving towards recovery and staying stuck.
This event is appropriate for individuals diagnosed with BPD, their families and friends, and mental health professionals and this call will be recorded for those who are not able to join us on Thursday evening.
The cost for this is $25 but you can register through July 16th for just $15 per person.
