The unpredictability of mood swings and rages associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) can be confusing and challenging for family, friends, colleagues and therapists alike. The hidden agenda and ruthlessness associated with Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) can be dangerous.
This training day will provide an in-depth understanding of BPD, NPD and ASPD, with a focus on: understanding the aetiology and lived experience of BPD, NPD and ASPD; recognising different types of narcissism and different presentations of ASPD (including sociopaths and psychopaths); understanding the substantial impact of BPD, NPD and ASPD on family, friends, co-workers and therapists; treatment options for BPD; and strategies for family, friends, colleagues and therapists to manage some of the difficult behaviours associated with BPD, NPD and ASPD. The morning session will explore BPD, the afternoon session NPD and ASPD.
The presentation style will be interactive, encouraging participant contributions and questions. The training day will also feature audio-visual material, demonstrating the lived experience of BPD, NPD and ASPD, as well as BPD therapy approaches.
