Supporting people living with borderline personality disorder

Join our interdisciplinary panel discussion about how collaborative care may help support people like Emma, a 35-year-old mother of two. Emma experiences strong anxiety and panic attacks and has a history of self-harm. She needs constant reassurance about her parenting and struggles to maintain relationships with partners. 

Learning outcomes

Through an exploration of borderline personality disorder, the webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to:

  • Design a safe and supportive environment for people seeking care for borderline personality disorder
     
  • Implement key principles of providing an integrated approach in the identification, assessment, treatment and support of people with borderline personality disorder
     
  • Identify challenges, tips and strategies in providing a collaborative response to assist people who have borderline personality disorder who are experiencing increased risk of self-harm or suicide.

Before the webinar, you’ll need to:

  • Read Emma's story, the case upon which the discussion will be based.
     
  • Review the Fact Sheet, which answers FAQs about participating in a webinar and addresses technical questions.

CPD points may be claimed for viewing this webinar.
