The GAP Conference is a one-day course focusing on prevention and early intervention for borderline personality disorder (BPD). It serves as part of an initiative to promote early detection and timely intervention for BPD across the health, education, welfare, and other relevant systems. Central to this goal is preparing the mental health workforce by updating knowledge of BPD in young people. During this conference, leaders in the field of BPD will present on a range of topics, spanning neurobiology and course of BPD to evidence-based treatments for BPD in adolescents. Cutting-edge research and practice will be distilled into presentations accessible to both professionals and lay audience members.
BPD has its onset in early adolescence and young adulthood yet diagnosis and treatment are commonly delayed. Early detection and intervention are key to offsetting the development of the disorder and yet the lack of training in early prevention and intervention marks a large practice gap in the field. This training will educate clinicians on the most updated information about BPD in young people and provide them with the tools to better serve their patients.
