STLCFD’s COO, in conjunction with Mental Health America of Eastern Missouri, will be discussing Borderline Personality Disorder in response to the film Welcome to Me.
Film-showing and Discussion
Welcome to Me
Join us on Tuesday, November 3 as we use film, clinical presentation and discussion to understand Borderline Personality Disorder and treatment.
Ryan Lindsay, LCSW and local expert in the diagnosis and treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, will use Welcome to Me as a backdrop for his clinical presentation of the disorder. Drawing from intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and additional advanced training with Marsha Linehan, PhD, Ryan will focus on:
- DSM-5 criteria
- Variety in manifestation of the disorder
- Trajectory and treatment based on current research and evidence-based practice
- Myths and stereotypes – in the public and among mental health professionals – that contribute to misunderstanding and stigma of the disorder
