This Workshop will help you enhance your skills when working with clients who have antisocial, narcissistic, and/or borderline personality disorders, ultimately facilitating breakthroughs in clinical treatment.
This workshop will feature case studies and video examples illustrating the presentation of symptoms, treatment approaches, and management techniques for each personality disorder type. We will also explore the effectiveness of various modalities, such as motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and dialectical therapies, which can be integrated into your daily clinical practice.
In this workshop, you'll learn how to:
Effectively manage antisocial personality disorder clients who may exhibit manipulative and potentially violent behavior during sessions.
Confront the perfectionistic tendencies of clients with narcissistic personality disorder and address their inclination to exert dominance over you as their therapist.
Gain a deeper insight into clients diagnosed with personality disorders characterized by intense emotions and a strong need for attention, testing your patience and empathy.
Assist individuals with borderline personality disorder in managing their explosive emotions, self-harming tendencies, and desire for chaos.
Participants will be able to:
Describe how the DSM-5® impacts diagnosis and treatment of individuals with personality disorders.
Identify differences between clients with antisocial, narcissistic, and borderline personality disorders to effectively inform your choice of treatment interventions.
Describe how to manage manipulative and potentially violent behaviors with your clients diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder in session to make therapeutic progress.
Utilize at least two (2) CBT techniques to clarify behaviors, values and goals with clients diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.
List techniques to decrease explosive emotions, self-harm tendencies and cravings for chaos for clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
