The Foundation Workshop will support clinician’s understanding and practice in working effectively and therapeutically with people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It will include a developmental understanding of factors contributing to a diagnosis of BPD, the ongoing effects of early life experiences, and the role of therapeutic relationships in treatment. The workshop will also focus on the assessment of, and working with, risk, as well as treatment principles.

This training is suitable for mental health clinicians who want to deepen their understanding and practice in working with people with BPD. It will include interactive discussion and exercises.

A Zoom meeting invitation will be provided closer to the event.
