THIS SEMINAR IS NOW BOOKED OUT – WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT FURTHER REGISTRATIONS
The next professional development seminar is on 7 May and is open only to VPA Inc members.
Professor James Ogloff will be our guest speaker, and he is the Director of the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Sciences and Director of Psychological Services for the Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health.
Title: Practical Approaches to Managing Personality Disorders
Despite continued views to the contrary, the research literature shows that most people with personality disorders can be managed successfully. Epidemiological studies show that as many as 15% of people meet the criteria for a diagnosis of personality disorder. Increased clinical effort must be employed to assist these clients.
This workshop will highlight the principles that can assist clinicians to treat and manage personality disorders. The theoretical approach taken builds on the empirical reality that features of personality disorders are extreme variants of normal personality traits. The treatment approach draws on Integrated Treatment, drawing together successful approaches from various modalities.
