Supporting People with a Diagnosis of Personality Disorder Training

Course Outline:

This one-day programme is designed for those working closely with people who have a personality disorder diagnosis or display behaviours that could be considered under this diagnosis. Participants will be equipped to understand the different characteristics of a range of personality disorders, the stigma associated with them, and the impact that this has on individuals, their mental wellbeing and help-seeking behaviours. This session will look at how to build confidence to understand behaviours as a professional which will in turn help to build a meaningful rapport and communicate more effectively with individuals.

Learning Methods:

A combination of learning methods will be used throughout the day, including lecture, workshop and group work. Interactive and experiential methods, in the form of case studies and reflection dilemmas will be used, to inform participant learning and support application to practice.
