Study Group: Making Sense of the Borderline Patient
Despite numerous attempts to develop a comprehensive understanding of the borderline phenomenon, patients with this diagnosis continue to present enormous challenges to the mental health practitioner. This event is for clinicians who are interested in exploring and enhancing the understanding of the psychodynamics of borderline patients. It will also include the opportunity to analyze the many variables which effect treatment outcomes. The possibility of a cooperative study group which will include exploration of selected readings and case presentations will be discussed.
