Reconsidering how we think about Brain Biology in
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Professor Ruocco will present his foundational research on brain biology in people with lived experience of borderline personality disorder (BPD).
He will cover research on brain circuits involved in emotion regulation, impulse control, and social perception, and include more recent discoveries on family members of people with lived experience of this diagnosis. These findings will be considered from a strength-based perspective, including how characteristics of people with lived experience of BPD might be conceptualised along the spectrum of neurodiversity.
This event is being held to show our support for BPD Awareness Month in the USA, UK and Europe. BPD Awareness Week is held in Australia 1-7 October each year.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This workshop is ideally suited to clinicians from a range of mental health and allied health sectors who want to broaden their understanding of BPD.
