The North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD)-Day One

April 16, 2021

This registration site is for the NASSPD conference, day one (April 16, 2021). This is only to register to complete the evaluation and obtain continuing education or continuing medical education credits for Friday, April 16, 2021. If you want to participate in the conference, you'll have to register at www.nasspd.org in order to get the Zoom link needed to attend the event. 

 

The North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD) is an organization devoted to research concerning personality disorders. Education and Consultative Services of UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital is managing this event, creating an evaluation, and awarding continuing education and continuing medical education credits. The course director and many of the presenters are UPMC/Pitt faculty. 

During the past decade, the view of personality disorders has changed dramatically. Rather than being seen as chronic conditions, it has been found that they have a particularly good symptomatic outcome. We are committed to further research on these disorders. We are also committed to informing clinicians, patients, and their family members about the latest information concerning this set of disorders. Finally, we are committed to aggressively advocating for the funding that these common but disabling disorders deserve. As we move forward, we look to established leaders in the field for guidance. We also hope to cultivate a new generation of researchers who will advance the field and by doing so, will lessen the suffering of these challenging patients.

The two-day conference will be for learning and networking. NASSPD is committed to informing others about the latest in personality disorder research. From inspiring keynotes to engaging workshops and presentations, NASSPD 2021 is the place to discover all this year’s most buzzworthy breakthroughs in the field. Continuing education credits will be available.

Expand your network and connect with both new and established leaders across the field of personality disorder research. NASSPD is not just an opportunity to learn, but the foremost opportunity to make lasting connections with others across the discipline.

 

Registration for the event is at www.nasspd.org. The refund policy is located there.
