Clients with Cluster B Personality Disorders (Borderline, Antisocial, Histrionic, and Narcissistic) can be amongst the most challenging for therapists. Clinicians who are not properly trained can inadvertently make clients worse, and can even put themselves at risk for licensure board complaints. However, when equipped with a deeper understanding of these disorders and the most effective principles and techniques, it can be extremely rewarding to witness the positive ripple effects that occur in these clients and their families.
Join clinical psychologist and author, Dr. Richard Sears for a compassionate yet direct approach for working with these individuals using cutting edge, practical interventions that are grounded in theory.
• How even the most frustrating, maladaptive behaviors get conditioned and reinforced over time (and what to do about it)
• How to recognize and interrupt unhealthy thinking patterns
• Strategies to help free clients of struggles with thoughts, feelings, and unhealthy behaviors
• Interventions to manage stressful sessions and emotional chaos
• How to avoid getting pulled into a client’s “crisis of the week” drama
With solid principles and detailed case examples, Dr. Sears will bring these concepts and methods to life with passion and humor, giving you practical take-aways to use in your very next therapy session!
• Differentiate diagnostically between the four Cluster B personality disorders to accurately inform the treatment planning process.
• Manage maladaptive, self-sabotage, manipulation and negative attention seeking behaviors in clients to improve client level of functioning.
• Utilize treatment interventions based in cognitive approaches, including ABC records, challenging distortions, and Socratic dialogue for clients diagnosed with personality disorders.
• Employ mindfulness-based interventions to increase client’s psychological flexibility and decrease emotional intensity.
• Evaluate and address potential clinical issues including crisis management, countertransference, boundary setting, and self-care to improve clinical outcomes.
• Distinguish three strategies to improve client engagement and stay present in session.
