Two of Menninger's maternal mental health experts will present Borderline Personality Disorder and Motherhood, a free webinar for mental health professionals, on Friday, June 18. Continuing education will be available.
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a notoriously difficult clinical challenge, with a high rate of distress and a high associated suicide rate. Little is known about the trajectory of BPD as women become mothers. Little is known about how specific traits of BPD, such as affective dysregulation or difficulties with sense of self, might fluctuate in response to this transition, or to the demands of caring for young children, or to the changes in relationships with partners that frequently accompany this transition.
In this webinar, presenters Jessica Combs Rohr, PhD, ABPP, PMH-C, and Elisabeth Netherton, MD, PMH-C, will explore how BPD influences the transition to motherhood and discuss specific symptom domains that are likely to vary across time.
This free, one-hour event will begin at 12 pm Central Time on June 18. It will be presented virtually via Zoom.
One (1) contact/credit/clock hour has been designated by The Menninger Clinic for the following disciplines:
