Borderline Personality Disorder: Case Studies in Conceptualization and Treatment
Like many psychiatric diagnoses, borderline personality disorder is overrepresented among justice-involved individuals. Symptoms are psychologically painful and destructive, and the diagnosis carries a stigma of being particularly challenging and treatment resistant. Understanding the underlying contributory factors to developing this disorder allows clinicians to take a trauma-responsive approach, assessing the complex trauma that often accompanies the diagnosis. This seminar moves beyond basic diagnosis and conceptualization and uses case studies to portray the complex human experience of living with borderline personality disorder in correctional settings, and the current interventions shown to be effective in treatment.
• Describe the major clinical features of borderline personality disorder, including diagnostic and behavioral components
• Explain a trauma-responsive conceptualization of borderline personality disorder
• Examine resources, tools, and evidence-based practices for treatment of borderline personality disorder
