About The Event
This workshop aims to provide a foundational knowledge in the area of personality disorders to assist in conceptualisation, identification and interactions with students. It will also have recommendations for how to engage in meaningful work in the moment, manage risk presentations, and map out referral pathways.
Consideration will also be given to the impact of this work on you the professional. The workshop is designed to be interactive with opportunities to explore your own scenarios.
