For Professionals

6 MODULE ONLINE FREE COURSE FOR PROFESSIONALS


This education series was designed for professionals to learn basic principles for the diagnosis and treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder.  It is the result of a collaboration between Drs. Brian Palmer, Lois Choi-Kain, and John Gunderson.  It was supported by a grant from the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder to help promote its mission to provide education and build awareness on BPD.

The series of six, 20-minute modules features videos of patients/families, interactive quizzes, narrated slides, and videos from a number of experts.  The video clips were made possible by Dawkins Productions. They are all from the video series “If Only We Had Known: A Family Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder”.

The complete series can be ordered from bpdvideo.com

Module 1: Making the Diagnosis of BPD
Module 2: BPD Course and Outcome Suicidality and Self Harm
Module 3: Treatment Planning
