What is ReParentive™ Therapy?

The term ReParentive is a hybrid of two therapeutic concepts:

  • reparative (adj) and reparent (v)

  • includes the concept of reparations

This approach has roots in therapeutic modalities that prioritize embodiment, mindfulness, liberation, and social justice; it is non-hierarchical and non-pathologizing.

Why Group is the Most Effective Therapy for Adult Children of Parents with BPD

Group is the ideal modality for this population, on account of the field of love that gets created, the contagion of ah-ha moments as clients share their insights, the mutual cheerleading that happens, and the overall end to the isolation and invalidation of a childhood riddled with blame and shame. Group becomes a reparative experience of family, as clients feel a sense of love, safety and belonging, perhaps for the first time ever.

Leading groups allows you to help many people at once. You can work more strategically, for fewer hours and serve more people, while making more money hourly.

* This group and training are applicable for all adult children of parents of BPD, NPD, cluster B personality disorders, complex developmental wounding/trauma, Dissociative Disorders (DDNOS), “emotionally immature parents,” and for anyone who grew up in an invalidating environment.

CE credits available for each phase of training

Growing Ourselves Whole

The ReParentive Therapy Group for adults who have a parent with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Growing up with a parent with Borderline Personality Disorder can be both difficult and isolating. Many children of parents with BPD never experienced the emotional stability, security and support they needed. If you had a parent with BPD or a history of trauma and emotional instability, this group may be especially helpful.
