Understanding Borderline Personality Disorder
February 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
A diagnosis of borderline personality disorder not only impacts the individual but also their family and friends. When loved ones understand the disorder and also learn skills to help themselves cope effectively, the prognosis is improved. In this presentation we’ll discuss the symptoms of the disorder in terms of some of the latest research about under controlled and over controlled temperaments.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES PRIOR TO THE EVENT. Check in will begin 15 minutes prior to the program beginning. Due to video filming, late attendees will be asked to view the presentation in the Green Room.
