Course Summary:

This training focuses on understanding the nature and development of personality disorder, before progressing on to the assessment of personality disorder and developing formulations. Focus will be on the IPDE (International Personality Disorder Examination). This is considered a gold standard means of assessing personality disorder. The training will also capture the new NETSCID component for PD.

The Alternative Model to Assessing Personality Disorder outlined in the new DSM-5 will be presented, along with the changes to ICD-11 and how to incorporate these. Attendees will score IPDE clinical video interviews and formulate using the DSM-5 alternative model and ICD-11. Please note that the training does not cover treatment, focusing instead on diagnosis.

The cost includes provision of handouts, reading material and CPD certificate. There are limited places on this course. Block booking discounts are available for services booking three or more places. Please email tiofp@tiofp.com for more information.

To attend the event you must have access to an IPDE manual, so that you can complete ratings. We wil be using the DSM part of the manual. You can purchase the manual from https://www.annarbor.co.uk/. TIOFP is not a distributor for the manual and so we cannot provide this for you. You may want to consider purchasing the manual and rating sheets (DSM versions) for your future use but for the training event you just require access to the manual.

The training commences at 9:30am and ends by 4:30pm on each day.

Trainers: Professor Jane L Ireland. Professor Ireland has been training on personality disorder for over 20 years. She works within high secure psychiatric practice and is author of the ASSIST personality disorder treatment programme.

Course materials: A certificate of attendance will be provided to all those who successfully complete the course.

Venue: Live Online Zoom Event

Who can attend: The IPDE is carefully controlled since it is diagnostic. The course is available for Psychiatrists and for Registered Psychologists (who hold a current practicing certificate with the HCPC).

Arrangements for psychologists in training and other professionals can be made, although it must be noted that such individuals can attend for CPD only.
