Course Summary:

This workshop is for those already familiar with and able to complete personality disorder assessments, using categorical diagnostic approaches (e.g. IPDE, SCID-PD), but who want to either refresh their knowledge base and/or apply developments from ICD-11 and the DSM-5 Alternative approach. Specifically, it will cover:

  • Conceptualisations of personality disorder and changes to this.
  • DSM-5 Alternative model and how to approach this. 
  • ICD approach and how to apply this.
  • The completion of more detailed personality disorder diagnoses.                                                  

Those unable to complete personality disorder analyses are also welcome to attend, to increase their knowledge base, but please note that attendance for such delegates will not allow them to complete ICD-11 or DSM-5 personality diagnoses.

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.
