Road Maps - Groups
BPD Co delivers an evidence informed therapeutic group called Road Maps. This is a 10 week group for young people (16-18 years) and 12 week group for adults, which has been developed by BPD Co, incorporating feedback from group participants. Road Maps is based on the common factors in effective treatments for BPD, emphasising the connection between vulnerabilities, events, feelings, thoughts and actions. This therapeutic group assists participants to build agency and be active in their own lives, while developing targeted coping strategies to tolerate distress. Self-referral to this program is encouraged and there may be a wait for the next available group depending upon demand.
Please see our Groups and Programs flyer for more information.
