Distinguishing Complex PTSD from Personality Disorders (Borderline): Diagnostic Implications

Free webinar with Marylene Cloitre, PhD, on May 28th 2021, 7.30-9.00 pm (CEST)

The ICD-11 diagnosis of Complex PTSD (C-PTSD) indicates the start of a new era in the field of complex trauma. The relevance of discussing C-PTSD in relation to other disorders related to complex trauma, such as borderline personality disorder, is at front. Therefore, ESTD is most delighted and privileged to announce a free online webinar for clinicians (members and non-members) on this topic with the excellent expert, dr. Marylene Cloitre.

Following the inclusion of complex PTSD in the ICD-11 diagnostic classification system and moving from a categorical towards a dimensional view on personality disorders, delineation in clinical practice may be difficult. Many clinicians may ask: “what is the difference between C-PTSD and personality disorders? – and, what are the implications for treatment?” Dr. Marylene Cloitre will address these questions in this webinar, in addition to presenting the scientific basis for the development of ICD-11 complex PTSD. She will also present knowledge on dissociative symptoms in C-PTSD Participants will learn about the specificities and overlap of respectively C-PTSD and personality disorders (i.e., Borderline personality disorder) as well as the diagnostic assessment of C-PTSD.

It is the aim of the European Society of Trauma and Dissociation (ESTD) to assist professionals in developing their diagnostic skills by offering a series of webinars with our special guests. This upcoming event will be held on ZOOM. Participation is open and free-of-charge to all mental health professionals, especially doctors, psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors. Registration is required via E-psyche. A recording of this webinar will be available for all registered ESTD members.
