Reconceptualizing Borderline Personality Disorder BPD Through a Trauma Disorder Lens
This talk is designed to assist participants with evaluating and challenging current assumptions about borderline personality disorder (BPD), and to explore BPD symptoms and traits from a trauma disorder perspective. This workshop will cover the neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma, overlapping features of trauma responses and BPD symptoms, and implications for diagnosis and intervention. The goal of this workshop is to provide clinicians with education and diagnostic skills that will enhance trauma-informed treatment.
