Chronic Suicidality and Self-Harm in BPD – July 2023

July 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Clinic - Assessments

Clients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or traits are often chronically suicidal and use self-harm to regulate their emotional world. Working therapeutically with these presentations requires the clinician to assess and manage the risk differently.

This workshop will provide learning in:

  • understanding the difference between chronic and acute suicide risk
  • the functions of self-harm
  • a model of risk assessment specific to chronic self-injury risk in BPD
  • talking with the at-risk borderline client and managing the dynamics
  • knowing and observing our own emotional responses and counter-transference
  • making management decisions about risk in this population, and documenting this
  • common systemic dynamics that occur between professionals when faced with risk in borderline personality disorder, and how to navigate these issues.

Please note, Monash Health staff need not enrol. For any enquiries, please contact pd@cairnmillar.edu.au.
