Personality Disorders: A Social Perspective

MRC Logo Med

Tuesday 20 February 2018, 1.30PM to 4.15pm

Speaker: Dr Julia Warrener, University of Hertfordshire

Utilising research findings from Julia's qualitative study, the workshop will consider both service users and mental health social workers understanding of personality disorder. The workshop will also explore the 'nature' of social work practice in this area and critically assert a social perspective on personality disorder, to underline social work's contribution to modern mental health services and, vitally,  more effective outcomes for people living with personality disorder.

Bursaries are available for students, staff and service users, as well as for volunteers from voluntary groups, community groups and charities; please ask for details.
