The emphasis will be on practice for clients with subthreshold personality disorder features who often fall in the gap between primary (IAPT) and secondary care service provision, including how to ensure clinical formulations and practice are culturally sensitive and attend to EDI issues. The workshop will concentrate on managing the therapeutic alliance, how to integrate techniques from other treatments within a cognitive formulation, how to maintain the boundaries of the work, and how to ensure good therapist self-care. The workshop has been co-designed with lived experience input and will incorporate video interviews of clients experiences and views on how to adapt care for clients with personality difficulties. The workshop is informed by analysis of how personality difficulty features impact on NHS Talking Therapy outcomes (e.g. Mars et al., 2020) and meta-analyses of how well CBT for depression can support clients with comorbid personality difficulties (Banyard et al., 2022).
