Found in: Events / Nationwide
Through gaining a fuller understanding of BPD and what is working in supporting these clients, participants will gain a new set of resources and related skills that can be applied to their practice, and the training will provide increased confidence when working with these clients who can be challenging for services. Staff’s assessment and conceptualisation skills regarding borderline personality disorder will be enhanced.

It will provide specific guidance for all mental health professionals in evidence-based psychological treatment for personality disorders, and complex trauma, and will dispel the common myths about Borderline Personality Disorder – what it is, and what it is not.

In addition to therapists and MH professionals in both primary and secondary level care, this workshop is also for front-line staff with no, or little psychological training, who may be struggling with how to work with these clients.

It will particularly suit those in NFP’s, community-based outreach services, community organisations, and those working with specific groups including young people or people with comorbid substance use.
