Course Description

CE Course Description

The goal of this intermediate level continuing education course is to provide the participant with an outline of mindfulness practices used to help those who are suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD).  The course was developed using the book, Mindfulness for Borderline Personality: Relieve Your Suffering Using the Core Skill of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, by Blaise Aguirre, MD and Gillian Galen, PsyD. Mindfulness techniques that help people with BPD face their judgments and intense emotions are presented as well as ways to apply other useful coping skills in the midst of emotional pain.  Also included are an overview of borderline personality disorder, practical applications of mindfulness, and case vignettes to see how these skills can be used to relieve specific symptoms of BPD.
