STEPPS and STAIRWAYS
These two groups are an approach to treatment of individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) originally developed by Bartels and Crotty (1992). That program has subsequently been adapted and revised by Blum, St. John, and Pfohl (2002). The current program includes two phases—a 20 week Basic Skills group, and a one-year, twice monthly advanced group program called STAIRWAYS. The combined program is identified by the acronym STEPPS, which stands for Systems Training for Emotionally Predictability and Problem Solving.
