Working with young people with co-occurring eating and personality disorders

Working with young people with co-occurring eating and personality disorders

Evidence suggests there is significant co-occurrence between eating disorder and personality disorder, yet, there is little clinical consensus to guide assessment and treatment for young people with these complex needs. This interactive workshop will explore the challenges when these problems co-occur, and will use case material to explore how a relational approach can help clinicians to manage these helpfully.

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

  • outline the evidence regarding the co-occurrence of personality disorders and eating disorders;
  • be familiar with the principles of relational clinical care (RCC);
  • compare the principles for early intervention for BPD with those for working with severe eating disorders in young people; and
  • consider how a relational approach can help clinicians to manage complex situations.
