DBC Personality Disorder Training

Saturday 27th March 09:30 - 16:30


Training run by DBC associates, this one day course would provide an introduction on the group of complex emotional and behavioural problems which include those receiving a diagnosis of personality disorder and other related difficulties (e.g. complex post-traumatic stress). These represent a series of disorders which manifest themselves in everyday social work practice and often involve those clients for whom staff find it difficult to develop effective interventions. For example, 70% of parents involved in care proceedings were found to have a personality disorder, and those working with adolescents with conduct disorders and self-harmers will be familiar with the difficulties presented by this group, particularly managing issues like mood regulation.
