Monthly on Wednesday, 12.00 – 1.00 PM (AEST/AEDT)

The Personality Disorder and Complex Trauma ECHO is a program for healthcare professionals who are keen to improve their capacity to work with people with personality disorder and complex trauma. The ultimate purpose of these sessions is to establish a community of practice of healthcare professionals ranging in expertise and who have a common purpose to improve the wellbeing of people with personality disorder and complex trauma.

Each session begins with a presentation from a Spectrum or an affiliated expert on a specific topic which is then followed by an in-depth case consultation. There are opportunities for attendees to ask questions and provide recommendations on the case study which is presented by one of the attendees.

Using a real-time online format, attendees will be able to:

  • Learn new approaches and skills
  • Participate in in-depth case consultation
  • Receive feedback and recommendations
  • Provide expertise to a community of colleagues
  • Earn CPD points (self-managed)
  • Have fun!

The Personality Disorder and Complex Trauma ECHO curriculum will address a variety of topics pertaining to personality disorder and complex trauma. The topics will range from understanding the causes and symptoms to topics that assist in treatment and recovery.
