Understanding the Needs of Library Users with a Personality Disorder
August 25, 2022 10:00am - 12:00pm CDT

The National Institute of Mental Health estimates the prevalence of personality disorders as 9.1% of the adult U.S. population, suggesting that public services staff will encounter individuals in this group. This workshop will provide attendees with a great understanding of common personality disorders, such as Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and Antisocial Personality. Attendees will learn how to enforce healthy boundaries, manage challenging interactions, and connect patrons with community mental health resources.

Learning objectives for this session include

  *   Understanding common personality disorders and how these may present in library users.
  *   Developing strategies to enforce healthy personal and library-wide boundaries with library users with a personality disorder in ways that are empathetic and equitable.
  *   Employing strategies to manage challenging interactions with library users with a personality disorder.
