Chronic Suicidality and Self-Harm in BPD – July 2023
July 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
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.
