The National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEA-BPD) holds workshops throughout the year on topics related to Borderline Personality Disorder. Since it’s impossible for you to attend every event held by NEA-BPD, the association makes a point of offering videos from leading BPD research professionals online and free of charge.
“Given the fear and shame that often accompany a diagnosis of BPD, it is essential that members of the public have this wide array of resources to explore with confidence and with confidentiality,” said NEA-BPD President Perry D. Hoffman, Ph.D.
NEA-BPD’s online collection of more than 100 video and audio files provides you access to conference presentations by internationally respected experts on Borderline Personality Disorder. Some of NEA-BPD’s most recent videos include the following:
- Overview of the BPD Diagnosis and Challenges, by Seth Axelrod, Ph.D.
- Clinical Demonstrations of Mentalization-Based Therapy (MBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), by Drs. Anthony Bateman and Alan Fruzzetti
- DBT: Essential Characteristics and Clinical Outcomes, by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D.
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Substance Abusers: A brief retrospective, by Linda A. Dimeff, Ph.D.
- Treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Suicidal and Self-injuring Clients with BPD, by Melanie Harned, Ph.D.
- Residential DBT Program for Patients with BPD and PTSD, by Professor Martin Bohus, MD
- Being Mindful of Emotion to Validate Self and Other, by Kelly Koerner, Ph.D.
Conference Call on BPD
Last weekend, in response to the news of Marsha Linehan opening up about her own struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder, NEA-BPD held an international public conference call that provided anyone who called in information on BPD.
“The front page article in The New York Times … about Marsha M. Linehan, Ph.D., drew welcomed, long overdue public attention to the disorder,” Hoffman said. “We want to be sure the people impacted by this disorder find accurate information, encouragement, and hope.”
Slides from the conference call, along with the library of videos, can be found on NEA-BPD’s website.
