Individuals with personality disorders have long been considered the most difficult clients presenting in the clinical setting. For years, a majority of professionals in the health care industry worldwide have held to the belief that they cannot be treated. Research is clear this is simply not true. But it is true that traditional treatment does not work. To treat these conditions effectively, clinicians must be armed with highly specialized knowledge to understand the nuances of what makes these individuals tick and to master the clinical skills needed to help them move out of chronic cycles of destructive behaviours.
Join leading exert in the field of personality dysfunction Dr. Jeff Riggenbach for this 12 hour online course and learn a specialized method of treating these complex cases that actually works. In addition to acquiring more practical skills than ever for your toolbox, he will walk you step-by-step through a comprehensive and in-depth approach for treating this population. You will get clarity on often unanswered questions, explore key structural issues necessary for effective treatment rarely addressed, and gain insight into the importance of process observations that are frequently missed.
The approach incorporates motivational exercises, DBT-based strategies, metacognitive interventions, schema modification work, and other evidence-based techniques integrated into a highly structured, yet flexible model that can be delivered by clinicians in a variety of clinical settings. It highlights essential ingredients many practitioners are oblivious to and provides practical skills that can be implemented by clinicians in the trenches the very next day.
Leave this highly engaging, chock-full online experience not only with tools for managing behaviours, but also armed with the in-depth practices required for creating the long term change that truly helps those you work with develop a life worth living. Oh, you might even develop a renewed passion for working with this group yourself!
