Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) for Borderline Personality Disorder
A One-Day Workshop
Frank Yeomans, MD, PhD
The treatment of borderline patients is one of the most challenging areas in psychiatry.
Many clinicians are intimidated by the prospect, are pessimistic about the outcome, and consider stabilization of symptoms, without deep change in the personality, the best possible outcome.
However, an increasing body of clinical experience and research shows that Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) can help these patients achieve character change.
TFP was developed at the Personality Disorders Institute of the Weill College of Medicine at Cornell University and has been researched both at that institution and in Munich and Vienna, establishing it as an evidence-based therapy. This course will teach the participant the theory of TFP and introduce the techniques which, in practice, help the therapist provide effective treatment of this disorder with less chaos and stress than is usually associated with the treatment of borderline patients.
The course will include an overview of object relations theory, which provides a way to understand the psychological structure of the borderline patient and will go on to summarize the strategies, tactics, and techniques of the therapy.
