Understanding Borderline Personality Disorder

 

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is an increasingly common diagnosis in the mental health profession. Unfortunately, BPD continues to be misunderstood and ineffectively treated. Part of the reason for this is that the behaviors associated with the disorder fit into many diagnostic categories, making it sometimes difficult to distinguish BPD from other disorders. The main goal of this course, which is founded on the newest research in the field of personality disorders, is to give you the tools you need to accurately identify individuals with BPD and become knowledgeable about the treatment options available. Drawing upon information from Linehan’s Skills Training Manual for Treating Borderline Personality Disorder, you will learn about how BPD develops, the theoretical perspectives of BPD, the goals of treatment, and the challenges you might experience when working with this population. Finally, you will learn about some of the most common issues that individuals with BPD experience while in treatment. Using a blend of experiential lessons, research-based information, and detailed case studies, this course will help prepare you to assess and effectively treat individuals who have borderline characteristics and BPD. This training is appropriate for mental health professionals with basic to intermediate levels of experience in treating individuals with BPD.
