Borderline Personality Disorder: Advancing Understanding and Treatment

This event is dedicated to the memory of Meridith Albrecht (1976-2010)

Please join us at St. Petersburg College’s Health Education Center in Pinellas Park on Friday, May 20 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm for our latest conference.

With a lifetime prevalence rate of almost 6%, BPD is an important public health issue that impacts countless lives. This conference will provide an overview of current research about BPD as well as supporting evidence-based treatments for this severe mental illness.

We are very excited to have celebrated BPD advocate and educator Kiera Van Gelder join us as a special guest for this event. Miss Van Gelder is the author of The Buddha and the Borderline: My Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder through Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Buddhism and Online Dating, and speaks regularly at professional conferences throughout the United States.
