The National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEABPD) will bring together leading Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) experts for a Meet & Greet Fundraiser on Friday, March 22, 2013, in Los Angeles.
The fundraising dinner, hosted by Clearview Women’s Center for Borderline Personality and Emotional Disorders in Los Angeles, will benefit individuals and families affected by BPD.
“Families are impacted by Borderline Personality Disorder just as much as the person diagnosed,” said Michael Roy, MSW, LCSW, founder and executive director of Clearview Treatment Programs and Clearview Women’s Center. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with NEABPD to bring together leading experts on BPD to help raise funds and awareness for more effective BPD treatment for both those diagnosed with BPD and their families.”
Borderline Personality Disorder Experts
Attending the fundraiser will be these leading experts on Borderline Personality Disorder:
- Blaise Aguirre, MD, medical director of 3 East at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital, and an expert in child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapy, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
- Perry Hoffman, PhD, co-founder and president of NEA.BPD, co-founder of Family Connections, and principal investigator on two grants from the National Institute of Mental Health on BPD.
- Robin Kissell, MD, director of the Borderline Personality Disorder Initiative at the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA, and Associate Clinical Professor and Clinical Instructor in the UCLA Geffen School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences.
- Alec Miller, PsyD, co-founder of Cognitive and Behavioral Consultants of Westchester in N.Y., and Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Chief of Child and Adolescent Psychology, and Director of the Adolescent Depression and Suicide Program, at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in N.Y.
“This group of people is at the cutting-edge when it comes to BPD treatment and support,” Roy said. “Having the chance to have them all in one room and ask them questions about Borderline Personality Disorder is an amazing opportunity.”
