Clinician Connections (CC), training is a condensed one-day professional development opportunity to equip you with the knowledge to apply the CC program in your own practice and provide more effective transactions when caring for people who present with high-risk behaviours caused by emotional dysregulation.

CC applies tenets of Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT) to provide evidence-based therapeutic interventions which support practitioners who work with individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

CC increases a practitioner’s knowledge of BPD, develops a skillset to work with emotionally dysregulated individuals and enhances the practitioner’s self-efficacy in relation to working effectively with this population.

CC looks at the treating system and the transactions that occur between the individual in crisis, the family members in crisis, and skills to maintain the connection, regulate self, and help the individual / family de-escalate.

Three of the most extreme stressors for practitioners are patients presenting with anger, threats of suicide and suicide attempts, all common features of BPD. However, DBT is proven to reduce clinician stress and ways of working therapeutically with clients.

Practitioners and Peer workers working in ED, acute units and community mental health teams who support these high-risk patients and their loved ones, will benefit from CC, as they are often not trained in psychotherapy to provide quality interventions. This perpetuates the stigma of this illness.

CC provides effective treatment that assists with a reduced suicide risk in a population who are already at risk.

CC also provides skills which can reduce Practitioner fatigue, stress and burnout, while increasing self-mastery.
