Phillip Milligan, BSc. (Appl. Psych.) MAPS MCCOUNP CCAA(Clinical), will present the PD on the topic of working with people with personality disorders. 

Registered as a psychologist in Tasmania from 1978 to 1983 as well as in Victoria since 1985, Phillip Milligan has practised psychology in vocational guidance, disability and education with experience in counselling and assessment as a private practicing psychologist since 1988.

He has taken a particular interest in trauma and recovery, working with victims and perpetrators of crime, along with a wide range of personal issues. He has recently developed an awareness of personality disorders, largely due to an interest in schema focused cognitive therapy as well as a growing awareness of the long term entrenched problems people often seem to have in his local community.

These personality problems are often resistant to short term therapy and require the foundation of a longer term therapeutic relationship for breakthroughs to occur. Close relatives often feel the brunt of these conditions and also need support.

The upcoming short seminar will have as its aim:

1. To establish a working definition of personality disorders, based on the work of Greg Lester and Theodore Millon, with an examination of the role of the Karpman Drama Triangle.

2. To attempt a description of the various personality disorders, to assist in assessment, along with a brief look at the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory.

3. To discuss the roles and struggles of close relatives who are in relationship with those with personality disorders.
