Description

The client whose problems meet the DSM-5® criteria for a 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 disorder is likely-co-morbid with other exacerbating disorders.

Watch Gregory W. Lester, PhD, and take home an integrated approach for working with these challenging clients.

Take home:

  • Evidence-based skills for successful treatment
  • Techniques to assess and treat comorbid personality
  • A framework for treatment planning
  • Skills to assist the client toward greater coping and adaptation
