Family Connections™ Virtual Leader Training
Family Connections™ – Managing Suicidality & Trauma Recovery
A Deep Dive Into the Family Connections™ Curriculum
Please join us for three days of learning presented by Dr. Alan Fruzzetti, co-creator of Family Connections™ – BPD/Emotion Dysregulation and Family Connections™ – Managing Suicidality & Trauma Recovery. For each program’s Deep Dive Leader Training, Alan will walk us through each module in his easy-going style which includes examples, roleplays, and time for questions. Each day, we’ll break-out into small groups and an experienced FC leader will facilitate discussion and skills practice. If you’re a recent graduate, experienced leader, or a mental health professional learning about the Family Connections™ programs for the first time, you’ll end the weekend with an even greater understanding of the education, skills, and support Family Connections™ offers families of those impacted by bpd, emotional dysregulation, and for parents of children struggling with suicidality and self-harm behaviors.
All courses offered by NEABPD are co-led by two trained Leaders. NEABPD asks for a commitment of co-leading at least three courses (virtual or on-site) within three years, the first one being held within 9 months of training.

What are the differences between the courses?
There are many similarities between Family Connections™ – BPD/Emotion Dysregulation and Family Connections™ – Managing Suicidality & Trauma Recovery, however Family Connections™ – Managing Suicidality & Trauma Recovery is specifically tailored to the needs of parents who have experienced a child’s suicidal behavior regardless of the diagnosis. This program is targeted toward those who experience trauma or stress-related problems — such as increased distress, grief, uncertainty about how to respond to a child’s crisis behavior — as result of caring for a child who attempted suicide, struggles with suicidal thoughts, or engages in non-suicidal self-injury.
