Early intervention for personality disorder

Early Intervention for Personality Disorder

Severe personality disorder (PD) or borderline personality disorder (BPD) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, yet clinicians remain cautious and unclear of the rationale for early intervention in this population and find these young people challenging to work with. This two-day workshop will review the current evidence about PD in young people and present a best practice model of early intervention for young people with PD.

At the completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • describe the rationale for early intervention for PD in young people and apply evidence-based early intervention and relational principles;
  • apply an evidence-based approach to working with families and friends of young people with PD; and
  • more effectively work with the challenges that can arise, such as managing interpersonal challenges, risk and chronic self-harm.
