Description

Attachment Informed Therapy for Personality Disorders

A 2-day training workshop at London with Dr Gwen Adshead

London, 29 & 30 September 2017, Friday & Saturday

Personality Disorders (PD), when viewed as social manifestations of pathological processes, can present clearly identifiable developmental disturbances. Across the spectrum clusters identified by DSM-IV and V, we can identify dysregulations of arousal, affect, stress-response and interpersonal attachment patterns. These dysregulations manifest in pervasive, maladaptive patterns of interpersonal behaviour, extreme difficulties of cognition and affect regulation, and diminished levels of impulse control – all of which translate into an extremely challenging therapeutic journey.

Not all ‘treatment’ choices have demonstrable efficacies. It takes learned skills for therapists to correctly identify, diagnose and work therapeutically with personality disorders.

As therapists, we could benefit from a deeper understanding of personality disorders (across the spectrum) that allows us to comprehend the neurobiology of personality, the role of attachment and trauma in the development of PD, the impact of PD on the trauma narrative, the linkage of attachment classifications with PD sub-types and evidence-based therapies for PD. At this therapeutically oriented workshop, Dr Adshead relies on an attachment-informed approach, while drawing on her long-standing clinical expertise to help us comprehend personality disorders in a structured and methodical manner. Over 4 modules and 2 days, the workshop helps us understand the aetiology and psychopathology of personality disorders (Day 1) and relevant therapeutic approaches (Day 2).
