A New Day in the Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder
Dates and Locations:
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has long been considered one of the most difficult mental disorders to live with or to treat. Individuals with this diagnosis often come to treatment with multiple diagnoses and complex life problems. Providers quickly become discouraged when implementing traditional forms of outpatient treatment, and the most difficult clients often end up repeating cycles of outpatient and inpatient terms of treatment, punctuated by despairing periods of no treatment. New understandings about the origins and development of this disorder, as well as new approaches in treatment have provided hope for this treatment population, the providers who work with them, and the families and other individuals impacted by them. This workshop will highlight advances in research and treatment that contribute to high rates of remission in this disorder in modern treatment settings.
