Skills for working with Borderline Personality Disorder 201

This online workshop will provide a more in-depth look into BPD, and evidence-based psychological treatment options for personality disorders.

Online - Friday, 7 May 2021

An Overview

This one day follow-up workshop builds on the introductory workshop of BPD 101 where we looked at Recognising, Understand and Responding to BPD. It is a chance to offer an in-depth look at your own casework, drawing on the issues in a little more detail.  

It is expected that you will be able to recognise the core presentation for BPD (e.g. DSM5 criteria) and to have a reasonable means of understanding a person with BPD impacts on you and your team.   There will only be a very brief recap of those BPD 101 points, but the focus in this workshop is about ideas for how to respond.  

If you have not attended the BPD 101 workshop, or you have limited training in recognising and understanding BPD, it is highly recommended you do this before attending BPD 201. Visit the website or email faye@grow.co.nz for more information.

We are also taking Expressions of interest for a 2-day workshop in 2021 about how to deliver the 20-week STEPPS programme. Email Faye at Grow to register your interest in this training or Visit the website for more information.

Learning Outcomes:

What will this one-day training offer you?

  1. A brief recap of diagnosis issues and awareness of impact on you and others (recognising and understanding).
  2. 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. 
  3. Help you to discuss at least one case example in small groups and main group discussion.
  4. Get a summary of a treatment plan to take back to apply to your casework with BPD. 

Case example preparation for you to bring to the training:

It is important to make sure this is anonymous and get client consent to bring this overview on basis of anonymity for your training and learning needs:

  • Context of where the client is being seen (e.g. mental health, ACC funded, NGO). 
  • About your client: age, gender, culture, location and core presenting issues. 
  • Safety issues: a summary of any risk issues and how managed.
  • Evaluation of your/your team's personal response to this client and what tried, what worked.


The Borderline Personality Disorder workshops are worth 20 points/6.75 hours CPD

Once you register you will be sent the Zoom Login details.

Participants will be doing exercises in separate (virtual) break out rooms and you will be emailed resources prior to the training. There will be group discussions and participants are encouraged to ask questions.

We therefore ask all participants to have their own computer / laptop as this makes interaction with the breakout room activities and discussions easier and enhances the learning for all.

Please note: Diane will share her slides with attendees post-event.

Workshop starts 9.30am  - finishes 4.00pm.

NOTE - This workshop has previously been offered as face-face training. If your organisation is interested in having Diane present face-face to your team, please contact Faye Johnson for more information.
