Mental Health, Ill Health & Personality Disorder

 

Thursday 23 June 2016
ICO Conference Centre, London

 

A Joint Healthcare Conferences UK & The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust National Conference.

 

We are delighted to welcome Professor George Vaillant, internationally renowned Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and former Programme Director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development for 32 years, to this national CPD certified conference. Professor Vaillant’s extended keynote address focuses on one of the most profound lessons from his ground-breaking longitudinal research on development across the lifespan; namely, that any exploration of the links between positive mental health and psychopathology requires an understanding of adaptive involuntary coping – the so-called ‘mature defence mechanisms’. The conference is aimed at all professionals interested in psychotherapeutic interventions in adults with chronic mental health issues related to particular underlying patterns of emotional regulation, expression of distress and interpersonal relating.  Drawing on research, clinical practice and theory, the conference will provide a crucial but often poorly understood psychodynamic perspective on individuals presenting with complex chronic mental health issues. By highlighting the links between good mental health, ill health, psychopathology, and personality it will promote a deeper understanding of the elements of effective psychological and social interventions in this population.

Masterclass: The Use of Restrictive Interventions: The legal framework

Tuesday 7 June 2016
Hallam Conference Centre, London
Healthcare professionals may not think that they use restrictive interventions but enhanced observations, physical restraint, mechanical restraint, manual restraint, rapid tranquilisation, searches, seclusion and long-term segregation are all considered to be restrictive interventions and should be used with appropriate policies and procedures in place. It is important that restrictive interventions are used appropriately, legally and ethically and also part of a care programme aimed at reducing the interventions.  Delegates will have the opportunity to raise issues and concerns specific to their own practice. The course will be run by a practising Mental Health care lawyer and will be case study led.

Masterclass: Introduction to Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy

Friday 8 July 2016

Hallam Conference Centre, London

DIT is the brief psychodynamic therapy model now offered at Step 3 within IAPT. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for depression state that brief psychodynamic therapy is one option that can be considered for depressed patients either when the patient has not responded to CBT interventions, or where the patient actively opts for a psychodynamic approach. This masterclass will provide an introduction to the model, explaining its key features, how it can help patients and which kinds of settings it can be applied to. The masterclass will be facilitated by Deborah Abrahams, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Anne McKay, Psychodynamically trained Clinical Psychologist, The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.
