Workshops run 9.30am - 4.00pm - via ZOOM
This one-day training is an introduction to skills for working with those with BPD, and will examine and address, the following questions regarding Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD):
What is personality?
How does personality become disordered?
What is Borderline Personality Disorder?
Why does BPD have such an impact on staff?
How is BPD most effectively managed and treated?
How do we support the client and their families effectively.
Diane Clare will provide attendees with practical skills for working with those with emotional intensity difficulties.
The workshop will also provide a brief introduction to the STEPPS™ (Systems Training in Emotional Predictability & Problem Solving *see below for more information) programme, explain why this approach is so helpful in responding to clients with consistency, and why it lends itself well to a cultural approach with Maori and Pacific cultures due to working with the client’s support system.
Many practitioners have said that the skills learned in this workshop have been useful to apply to a wider range of clients than solely to those with borderline personality e.g. people with emotional intensity problems or impulse control problems.
