Personality in Disorder


A one day workshop on working with clients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder & Anti Social Personality Disorder

During the day Malcolm will cover the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) as well as the ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases ) classification for Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder, as they are the same diagnosis though with different names from these two diagnostic manuals.

Malcolm will also cover Anti Social Personality Disorder (ASPD). He will explore some of the different treatment options for people who present with such diagnosis and also focus on the client and clinician experience, with some of his own case examples or case examples from the group.

The workshop will explore how these clients might present in private practice as well as primary care NHS settings. Malcolm draws upon his work in specialist NHS services as well as other treatment services.
