Our Personality Disorders [PD] Program consists of three clinics which offer assessment services and treatment to people with a severe personality disorder:
- Short-Term Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) Clinic;
- Extended-Care Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) Clinic;
- General Personality Disorders Clinic, which offer assessment services and treatment to people with a severe personality disorder.
Staffed by a dedicated team of mental health professionals who specialize in the treatment of personality disorders, these clinics provide comprehensive services for people who require out-patient care and promote psycho-education for their families and significant others.
To be accepted into one of the clinics, a person must be at least 18 years of age, and motivated to make constructive changes in his/her life. Each person receives a thorough assessment, and if appropriate, is offered a treatment plan designed to meet his/her needs. The conceptual frame for the program is trans-theoretical, encompassing psychodynamic, dialectical-behavioural, cognitive-behavioural, mentalization, and psycho-educational techniques based on established best practices.
