Eventbrite - Sexual violence how to support and work effectively with survivors


In the past, BPD (which has recently been re-classified as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder or EUPD) was often described as untreatable or treatment-resistant. Recent outcome studies have shown the effectiveness of Schema Therapy for treating BPD and conceptualizing this disorder within the context of complex trauma history. In this one day training event, two psychologists will give you a sound introduction to BPD/EUPD, as well as an in depth exploration of various treatment options. It provides 5 CPD hours.The day will include the following:

An introduction to Borderline Personality Disorder

  • • Identification of how BPD presents and the specific issues this can pose for therapists
  • • Explanation of what may affect the "holistic" patient: the circumstances that may surround BPD patients that differ from those with other illnesses because of the effect of the BPD symptoms on relationships.
  • • Identification of some of the myths surrounding BPD and guidance on how to support the less mythical elements
  • • Brief discussion of the principals of DBT commonly used to help BPD patients

An exploration of treatment options with specific emphasis on how and why Schema Therapy is successful

  • • Overview of various psychological treatment approaches
  • • Managing risk for the patient and self-care for the therapist
  • • Overview of Schema Therapy Treatment
  • • How Schema Therapy differs from classic CBT
  • • How a Schema Therapy formulation and concepts may be helpful even if you practise using a different therapeutic model
