Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a severe mental illness associated with significant morbidity and mortality, yet clinicians remain cautious and unclear of the rationale for early intervention in this population, and find these young people challenging to work with.

This two day online workshop will review the current evidence about BPD in young people, and present a best practice model of early intervention for young people with BPD and associated problems.

This event will cover:

  • understand the evidence and rationale for Early Intervention for BPD
  • be familiar with the principles of Relational Clinical Care
  • understand how to assess for BPD in young people
  • understand the essentials of psychoeducation about BPD in young people
  • understand the principles for working with families and friends of young people with BPD


  • Assoc. Prof. Louise McCutcheon (Senior clinical psychologist, Co-ordinator) — Orygen clinical training team
  • Elisabeth Morley (Senior clinical psychologist) — Orygen clinical training team
