This one-day training is an introduction to skills for working with those with BPD, and will examine and address, the following questions regarding Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD):
Diane Clare will provide attendees with practical skills for working with those with emotional intensity difficulties.
The workshop will also provide a brief introduction to the STEPPS (Systems Training in Emotional Predictability & Problem Solving *see below for more information) programme, explain why this approach is so helpful in responding to clients with consistency, and why it lends itself well to a cultural approach with Maori and Pacific cultures due to working with the client’s support system.
Many practitioners have said that the skills learned in this workshop have been useful to apply to a wider range of clients than solely to those with borderline personality e.g. people with emotional intensity problems or impulse control problems.
A further workshop is available on the STEPPS programme – visit the website for more information.
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.
Following on from this BPD 101 training, we are also offering a workshop on BPD 201. For more information click here to view the website.
