Personality disorders and social work practice
Wed 8 March 2017, 13:30 – 15:30 GMT
Overview: It has been 13 years since the Department of Health published the landmark policy document “Personality Disorder: No longer a diagnosis of exclusion”, but research evidence shows that people with personality disorder continue to experience exclusion, marginalisation and discrimination. This session will explore narratives around personality disorder and consider how social workers can work more inclusively with people with personality disorders.
