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 and expectations are appropriate.
In Thinking about Borderline Personality Disorder - Part II: Treatment, Duncan Cartwright, Ph.D., will focus on treatment interventions with BPD. Drawing on object relations, attachment theory and mentalisation-based psychotherapy, a number of treatment principles and technical considerations will be discussed, with reference to a case study. Dialogue about difficulties in the treatment of BPD will form the basis for discussion.
The cost of the workshop is R480 per attendee and is accredited for 4CPD points.
