If you believe that most self-harming clients have Borderline Personality Disorder – you’re wrong.
If you believe that the choice to cut versus burn, to starve versus binge, is arbitrary – you’re wrong.
Join Lisa Ferentz, expert trauma and self-harm clinician, and master the ability to decode and unpack the pain and the shame your client experiences and delve deeper into the source of their trauma and self-injuring behaviors.
Lisa will give you her proven approach that teaches your client new coping strategies that:
- Communicate their pain in healthier ways
- Short-circuit overwhelming thoughts and feelings
The usual approach is to have the client sign a “safety contract” – safety contracts do not work!
The usual therapy does not prevent the client from substituting the one self-soothing action (i.e. cutting) with another poor choice – like getting high.
Attend this transformational seminar and take away creative treatment strategies including drawing, writing exercises, and body-based techniques that give clients insight and help them let go of their self-destructive behaviors. You’ll also receive a new instrument to replace the safety contracts that so often fail you and your client.
