Avoiding the Chaos – Working with Clients Diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Working with clients diagnosed with BPD can be rewarding, challenging and frustrating. Labile moods, impulsive and risky actions and, at times self-harm behaviour can offer complexities to the therapeutic encounter. Using a number of vignettes to explore the transference / counter-transference issues that may surface in the therapeutic encounter, participants will gain greater insights into the roles they demonstrate in reaction or response to the roles demonstrated by the individual (and vice versa).

This workshop explores working with individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder through the lens of role theory. Participants will be given many opportunities to practice a number of process oriented and action based interventions to assist working with individuals spontaneously and creatively.

Feedback from prior participants:

  • “Very useful to view things from a different perspective”
  • “Very enjoyable – a serious topic tackled with humour and professionalism in equal measure”
  • “…useful, thought provoking and stimulating”
  • “…inspires me to be more curious and to investigate”
  • “I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and gained many insights”
  • “This workshop left me with a feeling that I have gained new learnings and exposure to different methods”
  • “I really enjoyed being challenged personally and professionally”
