Event Details

The National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder and Clearview Treatment Programs are proud to co-sponsor a GAP conference in Los Angeles.

GAP (Global Alliance for Prevention and Early Intervention for BPD) is an initiative that encourages early identification, diagnosis and dissemination of cutting edge interventions for the treatment of borderline personality disorder in young people and their families. Symptoms of BPD often appear during early adolescence and young adulthood yet, far too often, individuals and their families learn about the diagnosis much later, thus delaying treatment. Early detection and intervention are key to successfully treating BPD. The GAP Initiative aims to bridge this large and apparent gap in the field.

This one-day conference aims to inform mental health professionals, school personnel, pediatricians, as well as individuals and their families impacted by borderline personality disorder. Experts will discuss the importance of early detection, accurate diagnosis, treatment goals, specific DBT skills to help adolescents and family members, DBT-based parenting interventions and a peer-led program for families. We are honored to have people share their lived experiences and their successful navigation through the obstacles of symptoms and treatment.
