Understanding personality disorder in practice

The Training Exchange
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

We will deliver the training to a smaller group in a large room. We have been working closely with the venue to ensure we have Covid-safe measures and clear guidance in place.

If for any reason the course cannot be delivered face-to-face (e.g. guidance changes, there is a local lock-down, the trainer has symptoms), we will take a flexible and responsive approach to keep people learning – which will include delivering the training on the same day as a live interactive online session, or transferring bookings to the next available dates.

Develop practical approaches to work effectively with people with personality disorder life difficulties.

Using key psychological theories and models, the course explores the contested nature of this diagnostic category, the impact of stigma, potential interpersonal challenges and the importance of staff self-awareness and self-care in practice.

    Also available for teams in-house (we come to you).
