Directed by: Dr. Carla Sharp (University of Houston)
Saturday, November 4th, 2017 9:30am-5:30pm
Despite the fact that the diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in youth is legitimized in psychiatric nomenclature (DSM 5 and the ICD-11) as well as national treatment guidelines in the United Kingdom and Australia, BPD is not routinely assessed for or treated in most child and adolescent mental health services. This workshop will review the existing evidence base for BPD in adolescents, followed by a discussion and demonstration of evidence-based approaches to the assessment and treatment of BPD in adolescents, with a specific focus on the mentalization-based approach.
