Gunderson Personality Disorder Institute

Providing Clinician Training to Support Patients With BPD

The Gunderson Personality Disorder Institute at McLean Hospital was founded in 2013 to elevate awareness and training for evidence-based treatments for borderline personality disorder (BPD) and accompanying psychiatric conditions.

Led by director Lois W. Choi-Kain, MEd, MD, the Gunderson Institute offers conferences and workshops for clinicians. By providing training to clinicians, the institute aims to increase quality of care and access to treatment for patients with BPD.

Course topics include mentalization-based treatment (MBT)—offered in conjunction with the Anna Freud Centre for Children and Families, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), general psychiatric management (GPM), and transference focused psychotherapy (TFP)—offered in conjunction with the Personality Disorders Institute.

Course and registration information can be found in McLean’s conference listing.
