Growing Ourselves Whole (Level 2 of Loved One with BDP Therapy Group)
Growing Ourselves Whole is a 12-week group for past participants of Loved One with BPD Therapy Groupto further deepen and integrate learnings from Level 1 into daily life.
In Level 1 we uncovered the impact of the intergenerational wounding of having a parent/family member with BPD. We worked on creating an inner voice of a loving parent, explored boundaries, shared stories, uncovered messaging, learned about BPD patterns, explored what we want, identified many of the ways that this upbringing impacts our lives today. We did this in a community of others with similar wounding, yet with highly varied backgrounds.
Growing Ourselves Whole will deepen and take these goals further, asking such questions as: What are the ways that I act out the intergenerational patterns? In what ways I am different? We will keep freeing ourselves of the patterning that plagues our loved one.
In order to anchor and sustain transformation, we’ll incorporate various modalities. These include: group interaction, somatic exercises, role plays, art therapy, story sharing, boundary setting and skills for emotional regulation. We will use group interaction to help us internalize an authentic sense of ourselves. This is to say, level two will be more relational, and will allow for cross talk and feedback.
Since this group will be comprised of members of various level one groups, we will form a new community. The commitment is to create safety for members of all backgrounds and identities. Logistics:
