KUF personality awareness training

In December 2007 the Department of Health and Ministry of Justice commissioned the development of a national framework to support people to work more effectively with personality disorder.

As a result the Knowledge and Understanding Framework was developed and is now available nationally.

This educational development work built upon the aspirations articulated within the policy guidance documents "No longer a Diagnosis of Exclusion and Breaking the Cycle of Rejection" published in 2003. The key goal of the framework is to improve service user experience through developing the capabilities, skills and knowledge of the multi agency workforces in Health, Social Care and Criminal Justice who are dealing with the challenges of personality disorder.

London-wide Personality Disorder Awareness Level Training

The awareness level programme is the foundation element of the Knowledge and Understanding Framework and provides students with the underpinning knowledge and understanding required to work more effectively with service users with a diagnosis of personality disorder.

This is available for free to practitioners in London across both public and independent sector organisations that work with personality disorder and service users and carers.Each course is co-facilitated by a professional and service user trainer.
