Course Description:

The client whose problems meet the DSM-5® criteria for personality disorder can be the most difficult client in your caseload to treat. They may require more time in therapy, more energy and involvement on your part, experience a greater number of life crises, and create more upset with their family, work, and social systems than virtually any other diagnostic group. Often being “sent” for therapy rather than choosing therapy, their motivation for change may be limited and their personality disorders is likely co-morbid with other exacerbating disorders.

Join Brooks Baer, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and take home an integrated approach for working with these challenging clients.

  4. Explain the boundary violation traps inherent in each of the personality disorder relationships.
  5. Assess treatability and prognosis early on in the therapy.
  6. Evaluate the efficacy of various treatment methods including DBT and CBT.
  7. Manage suicidality, self-injurious behavior and violence so that nobody gets hurt.
