Borderline Personality Disorder- Online
Registration Closed
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness that centers on the inability to manage emotions effectively. The disorder occurs in the context of relationships: sometimes all relationships are affected, sometimes only one. It usually begins during adolescence or early adulthood. While some persons with BPD are high functioning in certain settings, their private lives may be in turmoil. Most people who have BPD suffer from problems regulating their emotions and thoughts, impulsive and sometimes reckless behavior, and unstable relationships. The diagnosis of BPD is frequently missed and a misdiagnosis of BPD has been shown to delay and/or prevent recovery. Officially recognized in 1980 by the psychiatric community, BPD is more than two decades behind in research, treatment options, and family psycho-education compared to other major psychiatric disorders. BPD has historically met with widespread misunderstanding and blatant stigma. However, evidenced-based treatments have emerged over the past two decades bringing hope to those diagnosed with the disorder and their loved ones. As treatment providers, we have a responsibility to learn, understand and begin to dispel the stigmas surrounding BPD and to not only seek education ourselves but elicit education for clients and other mental health providers, as well. This workshop will provide education, the origins of BPD, possible causes, the brain differences in someone with BPD and the latest research on treatment for individuals who suffer from this illness. Upon completion of the workshop/training you will have more confidence in diagnosing, understanding and having compassion and empathy for those suffering from this debilitating mental illness.

Mindfulness seminar- Online
Registration Closed
Emerging from meditative and contemplative traditions, mindfulness is increasingly used in Western psychology and medicine to alleviate an array of conditions. Mindfulness practices can help across a wide spectrum of issues from relationships issues, health issues, workplace effectiveness and reducing anxiety and depression. With the increased pace and often conflicting demands of practicing in the field of Mental Health we are subject to the effects of internal and external stress. Mounting evidence shows that mindfulness practice can reduce job burnout, anxiety, depression and stress, improve focus and empathy, and increase well-being for practitioner and patient alike. It can also provide an excellent conduit for self-care which has become a necessity and requirement for practicing in the field of Mental health, Social Work and Psychology. This workshop will provide a conceptual framework for mindfulness, a variety of tools and techniques for mindfulness practice, along with ample time for guided mindfulness practices, dialogue and Q&A. Therapists, Psychologists and Case Managers alike are welcome, including those new to the field or veterans.
