IPSWICH-Role Theory – Working with BPD (2-day) @ Training Room, Ipswich Hospice Care Inc
Sep 25 @ 08:30 – Sep 26 @ 16:30
Avoiding the Chaos – Working with Clients Diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Ipswich, SE Qld – This workshop explores working with individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) through the lens of role theory, expanding understanding of how we respond to others based on their behaviours, and how they then respond to us. Working with clients diagnosed with BPD can be rewarding, challenging and often frustrating.

Labile moods, impulsive and risky actions and tendencies to self-harm can present difficulties in the therapeutic encounter. Using a number of a number of vignettes, we’ll explore the transference/counter- transference issues that may surface in the therapeutic setting and discuss how best to work with them.

Participants will practice process-oriented, and action-based interventions to help them work with individuals more spontaneously and creatively.

The number of participants will be limited to 20.

This workshop is open to teachers, school nurses, clinicians working in mental health, & general health settings, police officers, ambulance officers & staff working in NGO’s.

ROMA-Looking After Ourselves with Tenderness @ TBA
Oct 29 @ 08:30 – Oct 30 @ 16:30

Roma – Workshop TBD…
Looking After Ourselves with Tenderness

This two-day workshop will focus on ways to look after ourselves as we provide care for the clients we see.

Using experiential learning (psychodrama) a number of themes will be explored during the day including resilience and self-care. The content will be contained within the framework of professional boundaries.

Having clear boundaries with clients, family of clients, colleagues, and peers is one way of looking after self. In this workshop the facilitator will integrate the importance of being tender with oneself in order to have tenderness for and with others—even when experiencing high levels of stress.

During this workshop our objectives will be:

  • To understand the link between professional boundaries and self-care
  • To explore how intrapsychic, interpersonal, organisational and broader systemic factors can influence the professional role you have with another
  • To discuss the importance of transference and counter-transference to guide self-care in professional relationships
  • To understand the link between resilience, stress and boundary transgressions
  • To understand how the experience of tenderness with self is an effective way to self-care
  • To identify strategies to assist and manage stressful situations and the professional relationships.

13 CPD available for attendance where applicable.
