Best Therapeutic Practice to Treat Mothers with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD and Substance-Use Disorder (SUD): A Workshop for Clinicians in the Treatment Field
Abstract Best Therapeutic Practice to Treat Mothers with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Substance-Use Disorder (SUD)-A Workshop for Clinicians in the Treatment Field By Jules Kessler Master of Science in Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy Clinicians working in the drug and alcohol treatment field will find various co-occurring disorders in clients with substance-use disorder (SUD), such as borderline personality disorder (BPD) (Zanarini et al., 2011). Due to the higher occurrence of BPD in women than men (NAMI, 2017), parenting can often present as a core issue for clients with BPD and SUD. Oftentimes, clinicians might feel at a loss or overwhelmed at how to treat the numerous core issues of mothers with BPD and SUD due to the short length of treatment in these facilities and the clients being unable to receive the most effective treatment as well. This project is meant to help the clinicians, the SUD treatment facilities, mothers with BPD and SUD and their children through a psychoeducational training workshop developed to specifically help the patients in need of treatment.
