Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is well known for the difficulties it poses to the treatment process. Therapists often have to contend with problems related to early dropout, extra therapeutic demands, acting out, persistent suicidal ideation, affect storms and chaotic interpersonal situations. Although this is the case, emerging evidence suggests that the prognosis for BPD is much better than previously thought if appropriate treatment is received and goals/expectations appropriate.
In ‘Thinking about Borderline Personality Disorder’ Duncan Cartwright, Ph.D., will present some current evidence about diagnosis, course and treatment of BPD. Drawing mainly on Object-Relations and Mentalisation-based psychotherapy, he will discuss core dilemmas in the treatment process and put forward a number of treatment principles and technical considerations to assist the therapeutic process.
The cost of the workshop is R420 per attendee and is accredited for 4CPD points.
