Despite the fact that the diagnosis of personality disorder in youth is legitimized in psychiatric nomenclature (DSM 5 and the ICD-11) as well as national treatment guidelines in the United Kingdom and Australia, personality disorder is not routinely assessed for or treated in most child and mental health services. This workshop will review the existing evidence base for BPD in adolescents, followed by a discussion and demonstration of evidence-based approaches to the assessment and treatment of BPD in adolescents, with a specific focus on the development of identity and adolescence and a mentalization-based approach to understanding and treating personality pathology.
