Description

Watch Dr. Eboni Webb and learn her keys for successful work with women of diverse backgrounds diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder impacted by early and ongoing developmental trauma. Dr. Webb integrates top-down and bottom-up strategies for addressing the traumatized minds and bodies of women who have been historically marginalized and revictimized in multiple systems designed to “help.” Eboni’s approach promotes adherence to treatment and strengthens the therapeutic alliance – through developing a new lens to understand the attachment trauma inherent in BPD and to validate the systemic oppression that maintains the stigmatized nature of the diagnosis.
