Following on from the introductory workshop (Skills for Working With BPD 101), this online training will provide a more in-depth look into BPD, and evidence-based psychological treatment options for personality disorders.
NZ based registered clinical psychologist Diane Clare presents this interactive workshop that will provide you with:
- A brief recap of diagnosis issues and awareness of impact on you and others (recognising and understanding).
- The chance to apply some of the preliminary responding skills to helping your case example. This will again draw on the evidence base such as DBT or STEPPS. It dips into those models for a few tools and is not a replacement for training in such programs.
- The opportunity to discuss at least one case example in small groups and main group discussion.
- Get a summary of a treatment plan to take back to apply to your casework with BPD.
