Our Centre of Expertise in Personality Disorder
Our Centre of Expertise in Personality Disorder provides specialist training, supervision and consultation within our five boroughs footprint and beyond.
The team is made up of equal numbers of Experts by Occupation (people with experience of working with people with a personality disorder) and Experts by Experience (people with lived experience of personality disorder) who work in partnership to develop and deliver training, supervision, research and consultation. As a team, we embrace co-production principles and believe effective services for people with a personality disorder arise from greater understanding and partnership between the providers and consumers of services.
We are an innovative service and we have been recognised nationally, including being shortlisted within the Health Service Journal Awards in 2011. Our multi-agency arm (Wigan Multi Agency Strategy) was also the winner of a Nursing Times Award in 2011.
After working together over a number of years to develop high-quality personality disorder training packages, we are now proud to be able to deliver our training externally. Click here to find out more about our training courses.
