This activity has already taken place.  See the 2018 course.


Mayo Clinic Course Director: Brian Palmer, M.D.,M.P.H.
Guest Course Directors: John Gunderson, M.D. and Robin Kissell, M.D.

This course will teach psychiatrists and other clinicians what is needed to become capable and comfortable in treating patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD). The course begins with a focus on interpersonal hypersensitivity as a unifying feature of the disorder. Through interactive cases and ample time for questions and answers, participants will develop skills in diagnosing BPD, understanding its course and outcome, starting treatment, applying principles of psychopharmacology, and effectively collaborating in multi-provider treatments. Basic information about the impact of BPD on other psychiatric and medical disorders (and vice versa) will help participants more effectively formulate care and treatment of patients with BPD and other disorders.
