To succeed with your clients who are truly difficult to manage and treat, you must understand PERSONALITY DISORDERS. Gain comprehensive, cutting-edge treatment and management strategies from author and speaker Gregory W. Lester, PhD.
Dealing with Personality Disorders
Although widely acknowledged to be the most difficult of all mental health conditions, few professionals are properly trained to assess and intervene in cases involving personality disorders. These disorders are almost always the driving force behind stalled treatment; stressful and frustrating case management; and confusing, resistive, and seemingly unmanageable clients. Unless practitioners understand how personality disorders are unique, and learn the specific methods that are required to treat and manage them, their effectiveness will be sharply diminished and the stress caused by this clientele will be unnecessarily high.
This seminar is the long-anticipated DSM-5 update of the longest running, largest attended seminar on personality disorders in the world (formerly titled, "Personality Disorders in Social Work and Health Care"). This revised seminar features an updated and expanded intervention section; the DSM-5 diagnostic changes; and the most current and comprehensive information available about the identification, treatment, and management of personality disorders. Designed for practitioners who know very little about the phenomenon as well as those with highly developed assessment and intervention skills, attendees gain new understanding of the phenomenon and acquire powerful interventions for the management and treatment of their most difficult and frustrating cases.
