Episode Info:

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is often a poorly understood, stigmatised disorder and more common than you think, with between 1-3% of the population suffering a breakdown at some stage. BPD can encompass feelings of depression, hopelessness, obsessive behaviors, self harm, suicide, substance abuse and unstable relationships. Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is the new psychotherapy of choice in Australia for BPD. Today we're talking to Megan Shiell, an experienced DBT and Art Psychotherapy clinician and educator about how she combines DBT and art to help those with BPD and other mental illnesses. Megan takes us through some of the strategies in DBT that assist patients, through a mindfulness-style approach, to recognise and redirect their behaviours before they become an issue. She also shares her passion for educating both clients and health care professionals through affordable online programs she's developed.
