Course content

There has been a significant shift in the current and future provision of care and support for people with personality disorder and those who work with them.

Our course will give you the opportunity to develop specialised knowledge about the needs of people with personality disorder in a variety of settings.

You will extend your:

  • knowledge
  • understanding
  • skills

This deepening of knowledge and understanding will allow you to support and meet the needs of the challenging experiences faced by people who are often stigmatised, isolated and rejected by society.

You will be taught by lecturers with a wide range of knowledge about personality disorder from diverse perspectives. In addition, an important contribution will be made from clinical experts in the School of Forensic Mental Health (SoFMH) and the health sector across Scotland.
