PROGRAM OF THE CONGRESS
OCTOBER 10-12, 2003
1- Axis I/Axis II: which are the diagnostic and therapeutic relationships between Axis I and Axis II disorders?
2- Diagnostic models: which are the evidences in favour of, or disconfirming the diagnostic validity of personality disorders ? Does the categorial vs. dimensional approach controversy still make sense, and is it possible to resolve it?
3- Temporary stability: are personality disorders actually stable in time? What do we know about it; what is persisting and what is changing over the short, medium and long period?
4- Nature and nurture: how do nature and nurture interact in the pathogenesis of personality disorders?
5- Treatment efficacy: what do we really know about what is effective - and how it works - in the treatment of personality disorders?
