Event Details
Scottish Personality Disorder Network Conference

Thursday 21st September 2017

Murrayshall House Hotel

Scone, Perth, Scotland PH2 7PH

This year, The Scottish Personality Disorder Network (SPDN) is hosting a conference that will be focused on the continuation of the network. The emphasis of this conference will be to set up the priorities of SPDN by collaboratively discussing the nature of the network, its purpose and where its primary focus should be to secure the future of the network for the next few years.

We believe that service users, carers, and professionals can work in an inclusive way to build a workable plan as part of the regeneration of the SPDN. We want to hear what you want from the network and how you would like it to look.

Additionally, we are delighted to have Dr. Ruchika Gajwani along to share some of her findings on emergent personality disorder and discuss with the attendees at this conference.

This will be a useful conference for service users, carers and professionals working (or interested in) the issues around Personality Disorder and for those wanting to be involved in the Personality Disorder Network.
