Working with Personality Disorder
Our training uses a wealth of practical examples, case studies and group exercises to help participants understand what Personality Disorder actually means, and how doctors and psychologists apply the label to an individual.
The course also introduces the Personality Disorder Toolkit to help care workers identify new and existing strategies for helping and supporting a client group who are almost universally unpopular and controversial, and yet can be shown to make significant progress given the appropriate surroundings and input from staff.
This 1-day course is also available as a shortened 3 hour workshop with consecutive AM and PM sessions for separate delegate groups. This version will have reduced Learning Objectives and more intensive input. Please contact us for further details.
