About BPD Training Courses for Therapists

Because of their frequent relational conflicts, varied developmental levels of transference, and polarisation of emotions such as hate, elation, despair and anger, borderline personality disorder (BPD) clients constitute a professional challenge for many psychotherapists. BPD affects an individual’s mood and the way they think, feel and interact with other people. People with BPD tend to be emotionally unstable and have upsetting thoughts. However, with the right therapeutic help, many people with BPD can go on to lead fulfilling lives and form lasting positive relationships. Our BPD training courses cover diagnostic perspectives on Attachment Disruptions, an understanding of the aetiology of Early Affect-Confusion and the Formation of the Borderline Personality, the importance of an attuned therapeutic relationship and working knowledge of when and how to use behavioural interventions and/or supportive age regression.
