Are you a parent who is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder? If so, you know the unique challenges and obstacles of managing your BPD and parenting effectively.

Many of my clients struggle with these same issues, so I made a video to help. In this video, we will discuss parenting interaction styles, emotion recognition, and activity structuring for parents with BPD.
