Event description
This workshop will explore the challenges managing young people with co-occurring eating and borderline personality disorders.

About this Event

Evidence suggests between 30 to 75 per cent of people experiencing an eating disorder have a personality disorder and rates of eating disorders are 20 times higher in a personality disorder sample compared with the general population. Yet, there is little clinical consensus or research evidence to guide assessment and treatment when eating disorders and personality disorder co-occur. A relational approach can help to manage the challenges experienced by clinicians when working with this group. This interactive workshop will use case discussion to explore the issues, and will be delivered by the Orygen Eating Disorders Coordinator and staff from the Helping Young People Early (HYPE) program, an early intervention program for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

At the completion of this workshop you will be able to:

  • outline the evidence regarding the co-occurrence of personality disorders and eating disorders;
  • be familiar with the principles of relational clinical care (RCC)
  • compare the principles for early intervention for BPD with those for working with severe eating disorders in young people; and
  • consider how a relational approach can help clinicians to manage complex situations.
