Everything You Wanted to Know About Treating Borderline Personality Disorder with Psychotherapy

Highlighting the Theory and Practice of the Conversational Model in the Development of Mindfulness and Reflective Capacity

Speaker Dr Nick Bendit

In this Seminar, Nick will contrast the Conversational Model with other Evidence Based Models and PTSD Treatments including Dialectical Behavior Therapy, with special consideration given to the emergence of mindfulness and reflective capacity as psychotherapy progresses.

Nick has been the co-designer and researcher of the second-largest RCT comparing treatments for people experiencing complex trauma or BPD. Nick is co-author with Professor Russel Meares, Joan Haliburn, Anthony Korner, Dawn Mears and David Butt of Borderline Personality Disorder and the Conversational Model: A Clinicians Manual Norton (2012) and a contributing author to Humanising Mental Health Care in Australia, Benjamin, Haliburn and King (eds) Routledge, 2019.

The seminar promises to be intellectually and experientially rich and stimulating, comparing and contrasting vastly differing theoretical frameworks which have given rise to the major contemporary treatment models for a condition that causes a great deal of suffering and is o[en misunderstood.  The seminar is presented by an experienced and dedicated clinician, researcher and supervisor who has trained in and deeply engaged with, the major contemporary treatment models. He has brought this dedication to the compassionate understanding and treatment of his clients. There will be ample opportunity to learn and discuss together in this not to be missed seminar.

This event counts as 3.5 hours of category A CPD for PACFA’s membership renewal requirements.
