January 29, 2021 | 1:00 to 4:00 pm CST | Live On-line
Borderline Personality Disorder is often a diagnosis that is misunderstood and can go undiagnosed causing many to go without effective treatment. At least 1-2 % of the population are diagnosed with BPD, however, it is likely this statistic is an underestimate due to the difficulty practitioners have with understanding the diagnosis and its presentation. If BPD goes untreated, it can easily be fatal due to the symptoms of chronic suicidal ideation and/or self-harm behaviors. This training will assist you in gathering a clear understanding of BPD through a breakdown of the diagnostic criteria, review of case studies, and walk thru of patterns of emotional dysregulation that are often indicative of those who have BPD.
