About this event

[Please note: If this workshop is not able to be delivered face to face due to imposed COVID-19 restrictions, it will be reverted to an online workshop via zoom.]

Working with crises associated with BPD - 1 day (9:30am-4.30 pm) - 30th November 2021

This full-day workshop is for mental health clinicians working in emergency or crisis services, from emergency departments, triage, crisis assessment teams to case managers actively working in rostered function. The workshop will focus on engaging effectively with clients presenting with BPD who have suicidal ideation and/or non-suicidal self-injury and who require a crisis response.

It will include the complexities of assessing and working with risk associated with BPD, and how the National Health and Medical Research Council Guidelines inform risk assessment and effective crisis responses, as well as how clinicians can respond therapeutically to crisis.
