OVERVIEW

This one-day course aims to increase access to and quality of care for patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD), a functionally disabling and prevalent personality disorder that complicates the care of its comorbidities. There are a number of evidence-based treatments for BPD that have been developed, and experts in various treatment modalities Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mentalization-Based Treatment 
(
MBT), Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) and General/Good Psychiatric Management (GPM) will each be discussing their specialty to address the practice gaps outlined above. Applications of these treatments to different populations (e.g. adolescents) and in different clinical settings (e.g. emergency rooms) will also be covered.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

         Explain the BPD diagnosis to patients and families (provide psychoeducation)

         Identify evidence-based treatments for BPD and their general principles

         Employ fundamental guidelines for treating BPD

         Describe how different treatments for BPD can be adapted to different contexts
