Deconstructing Borderline Personality Disorder
Trainer: Flick Grey
ABOUT THE COURSE
There are few diagnoses which raise as strong feelings and controversy as Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) a label applied predominantly to women, many of whom are survivors of childhood sexual assault, family violence or other overwhelmingly distressing interpersonal experiences.
This workshop challenges the pathologizing, de-contextualizing and individualizing concept of “personality disorders” and explores more generative ways in which experiences labelled BPD can be understood – in terms of mis-attuned, disavowed and invalidating relational environments, as creative adaptations and/or (valuable) relational sensitivities. We will draw upon lessons from the Hearing Voices Movement, Open Dialogue and Mad Studies to explore more robust relational understandings and responses.
