Description

‘Supporting, caring for and loving a person with Depression or Bipolar Disorder whilst caring for yourself’ presented by Breda Dooley, MA Applied Psychology, MA Counselling & Psychotherapy, Professional Certification CBT.

Breda Dooley was diagnosed with Bipolar aged 36. She presents on the personal boundaries required in families between the person diagnosed with a mental illness and their partners. Breda is interested in the family as a unit trying to deal with the challenge of coping when one member has a mental health condition. Breda references her own life experience as a parent and partner of 27 years to her husband. She also references her academic research on ‘Partners of a person who has a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder’. Feedback from her qualitative interviews with research participants indicate a felt difficulty of partners locating support in relation to their role as a ‘carer’ within the relationship/family unit.
