Further information

The unpredictability of mood swings and rages associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) can be confusing and challenging for family, friends, co-workers and therapists alike. This seminar will provide an in-depth understanding of BPD and NPD, with a focus on: recognising the different types of narcissism (overt, covert, grandiose, vulnerable, malignant); learning about assessment of NPD and BPD; understanding the substantial impact of NPD and BPD on family, friends, co-workers and therapists; the NPD-BPD-caretaker triangle; psychological treatment options; and strategies for family, friends, colleagues and therapists to manage some of the difficult behaviours associated with NPD and BPD. The morning session of the seminar will explore NPD and the afternoon session BPD. The presentation style will use case studies and will be interactive, encouraging participant contributions and questions.
