People with Borderline Personality Disorder are regular visitors to General Practices - and among the patients who most stretch the capabilities of a General Practice. The Centre for Psychotherapy in Newcastle, Australia, offers a special outpatient service for people with BPD that utilises two of the most effective therapeutic approaches - the Conversational Model and Dialectic Behaviour Therapy. Two principals from the Centre will discuss what, in their experience, works with BPD, and how general practitioners can best manage patients with BPD in their practices.
This recorded live web-cast has been organised by the Australian College of Psychological Medicine. The ACPM would like to express appreciation to the Central Sydney General Practice Network for financial support provided to assist in the production of this webcast.
