Steve Goldsack presents ‘Personality Disorders’
Date: Saturday, 28th July
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m
Steve Goldsack delivers a nationally accredited course for the Institute of Mental Health and has worked with consultants, probation officers and prison staff to raise awareness of personality disorders. As well as this work he delivers peer support groups across Kent and has contributed to national surveys around the provisions of services for Personality Disorders. The session is developed using knowledge gained from the work and training he delivers along with lived experience as a person diagnosed with Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder.
The PD Awareness Session aims to give attendees a greater understanding of the diagnosis, its historical and contemporary contexts and also the current treatments and issues locally. It is hoped that attendees will gain a better understanding of this most difficult of diagnosis and allow them to work/care in a more confident and effective manner with their clients/family members.
This session is tailored towards specific roles and adapted for most service users and carers. Questions are welcomed throughout and there will be links to useful websites and handouts where appropriate.
Steve has been diagnosed with BPD and works to raise awareness around its difficulties. You can find out a little about Steve from his website: www.stevegoldsack.wordpress.com.
Cost £50.00 for 3 CPD hours. Certificates of attendance provided. Coffee and biscuits provided during the short interval.
