Event description

Description

Course Content

The day’s training will offer a non-medical, psychologically informed understanding of the experiences and behaviours experienced by people with diagnoses of personality disorder. The course will explore child development, attachment and early year’s trauma, to support practitioners to develop a felt understanding of what people with this diagnosis might experience, and to consider which differential diagnoses might be important to hold in mind.

We will differentiate between the ten main diagnoses in the DSM-5, that are used within psychiatry to describe people’s experiences. We will consider how they are ‘clustered’, exploring what is similar and different about them. Participants will leave with a working knowledge of what these diagnoses mean, and what people with these diagnoses experience in practice.

Finally, we will use the understanding we have developed to consider approaches practitioners might take to better support the people they work with. We’ll use the Window of Tolerance model and case examples brought by participants to explore how an approach informed by the understanding of the impact of trauma can make a significant difference in supporting people with this diagnosis to better regulate their internal states.

The workshop costs £115 for the day and includes a buffet lunch and refreshments. If you would like more information, please call us on 0113 2583399 or email contact@tatraining.org.

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at counsellors and therapists, those working in social care, housing and in mental health services. It requires no prior knowledge of personality disorders, though experience in working alongside people in distress or experiencing poor mental health would be valuable.
