Project Description

Recovering Function Building Hope

Exploring BPD & Complex Trauma

This is a comprehensive program exploring the presenting features, treatment and support needs of BPD and Complex Trauma. We consider their pathways of emergence,  their impact on day to day functioning, the challenges of building effectively, meaningful relationships and the role of mental health and support services in helping to restore functionality and build hope for fulfilling lives.

We will help participants develop a clearer understanding of BPD and Complex Trauma, including their differences and similarities. Utilising a trauma informed and recovery focused lens this online webinar will provide important insights, targeted skills and effective strategies to support consumer-centred outcomes in challenging situations. This program is also supported by an additional, applied practice, half day workshop.

Participants will learn:

  • Key features of BPD and Complex Trauma
  • Skills and strategies that support effective boundaries and respectful relationships
  • The role of Trauma Informed Care & Practice in supportive effective systems work
  • How to navigate traps and pitfalls regarding risk concerns, impulsive behaviours and relationship challenges
  • CHIME – as ‘guiderails’ for true recovery orientated work
  • Effective crisis management strategies

“I really liked the practical aspect of doing what is right, not what we’re simply taught to do. Medical Practitioners often (in my opinion!) don’t receive the training in the area of complex mental health including BPD and this kind of seminar is really practically valuable… I can think of multiple patients where I will adjust some of the ways I’ll approach their care… I am optimistic this will help them as well as my anxiety and stress in my management.”
