Through conferences and workshops for clinicians, the Gunderson Personality Disorders Institute aims to increase quality of care and access to treatment for patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD).
Course topics include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), general psychiatric management (GPM), mentalization-based treatment (MBT)—offered in conjunction with the Anna Freud Centre for Children and Families, and transference-focused psychotherapy (TFP)—offered in conjunction with TFP-New York.
This 8-hour, self-paced continuing education course for health care professionals offers training in an empirically validated treatment approach to borderline personality disorder (BPD) known as general psychiatric management (GPM). The course utilizes group discussion, video clips, and clinical vignettes to promote interactive learning and a comprehensive understanding of the treatment.
Clinicians seeking advanced proficiency in treatment modalities are encouraged to register for upcoming clinician supervision offerings. Virtual sessions are run by Dr. Lois Choi-Kain and other certified trainers.
Supervision offerings include general psychiatric management (GPM), mentalization-based treatment (MBT), transference-focused psychotherapy (TFP), and more.
