This one-day workshop will cover both practical and theoretical approaches to the disputed diagnosis of “Borderline Personality Disorder”, facilitated by someone with lived / living experience of these issues. It aims to strike a balance between questioning the construct and discussing practical approaches to some of the difficulties associated with it. This is to minimise the risk that in the context of ever-decreasing budgets, changes in theoretical approach could inadvertently restrict access to support.
