Join us for an interactive discussion led by Dr. James Seymour, MD, SEP, Trauma Psychiatrist at Sierra Tucson. The session will review the history of and the conceptualization of the concept of the Borderline Personality Disorder. We will discuss the limitations of categorical diagnoses of personality disorders, the problem of the "other", and how it can lead to stigmatization, shame, and unintentional mistreatment by mental health practitioners. We will briefly discuss the polyvagal theory to help us understand the neurobiology of the interpersonal difficulties that individuals with the so called "borderline" diagnosis have. We will describe a paradigm shift in viewing borderline issues and it's implication for clinical practice.
Please note: This event is for Clinicians and Providers only. Registration is required to attend.
