Description
The research literature on borderline personality disorder (BPD) is complex, confusing and replete with contradictory findings from heterogeneous, convenient, small and/or selected samples. This intermediate workshop focuses on current research findings on BPD with particular attention on prevalence, phenomenology, comorbidity, course and treatment outcomes. Both seminal studies and often neglected findings will be highlighted. Recent psychopharmacology and psychotherapy treatment studies will be emphasized and recommendations made based on these findings for making diagnoses and for evidence-based treatment of BPD.
Learning Objectives
1. Articulate the most current research on borderline personality disorder.
2. Recognize and diagnose borderline personality disorder, including being able to make important differential diagnoses (e.g., with bipolar disorder, PTSD, MDD) and understand the relationship between BPD and common comorbidities (e.g., MDD, PTSD, SUD).
3. Discuss various empirically supported treatment options for borderline personality disorder.
4. Identify and respond to the clinical and ethical issues that arise in the diagnosis and treatment of borderline personality disorder.
