Working with clients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Working with clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) can be rewarding, challenging and frustrating. A significant limitation in individuals diagnosed with BPD is their ability for self-regulation and this can be directly linked to their early attachments. Labile moods, impulsive and risky actions and at times, self harm behavior can present complexities in the therapeutic encounter. 

Students will consider a number of process oriented, and action based interventions to assist working with individuals spontaneously and creatively. This course also explores working with individuals diagnosed with BPD through the lens of role theory.  Using a number of case studies to explore the transference/counter-transference issues that may surface in the therapeutic encounter, students will gain greater insight into the roles they demonstrate in reaction or response to the roles demonstrated by the individual (and vice versa). 

Certification is available upon successful  completion and attracts 10 CNE/CPD points where applicable
