About the conference

Personality Disorder Conference:
Advances in management and treatment of Personality Disorder
This one-day conference is aimed at all professionals interested in maximizing their treatment impact by learning about the current evidence-based best practices for working with people with personality disorder, supporting continuing professional development and ensuring a service user and family / carer focus.

Personality disorders are one of the most misunderstood and misdiagnosed of all the DSM-5/ICD 10 mental disorders and treating these complex disorders can be extraordinarily challenging for clinicians. The difficulty with identification and diagnosis often lies in the fact that people with personality disorders often have other, more easily recognisable mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety, psychotic disorders and substance-abuse disorders. While these are being diagnosed, the personality disorder often goes undiagnosed or unaddressed.

Identifying what works in the treatment of PD is a complex question. Many professionals still consider these disorders as untreatable, however, recent evidence suggests otherwise. The advancements and efficacy of treatments will be looked at in detail at this conference.

What to expect from this event

This event comprises sessions and talks given by professionals and experts in the field of Personality Disorder from a broad range of clinical backgrounds and expertise, offering different perspectives into the disorder topic. The format also offers opportunities for delegates to ask questions. Therefore, it is advised to come prepared with some questions in mind to ask.
The intended outcome of this event is that delegates will be better informed about personality disorder and so will be able to design and deliver interventions that are of maximum benefit for service users.
By including the most up-to- date clinical guidelines and multiple well-established intervention strategies, this conference will help healthcare workers and other professionals to maximize their treatment impact by learning about these current evidence-based best practices and how to apply them in their own clinical setting.
