Existing treatments for borderline personality disorder (BPD) require extensive clinician training and face-to-face intervention. To expand treatment opportunities, psychoeducational videos about BPD might be made available online. We seek to test a suite of online videos for this purpose that will include tools for assessment of symptoms and cognition. Our aim is to make available for wider dissemination a clinical prescription that requires minimal effort and little additional training for treating clinicians.
The webinar is hosted by Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and host of the public television series Healthy Minds.
