Clinicians can face complex diagnostic and treatment challenges when people present with features of both borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A degree of clarity has been achieved since Complex PTSD was formally included in ICD-11 but diagnostic difficulties and treatment challenges persist.Over the course of this conference, experts from the fields of BPD and complex trauma - separated for too long - will guide clinicians towards diagnostic clarity while informing treatment and research directions.

Who should attend? Mental health workers, clinicians, researchers and other professionals working with people with personality disorders.
