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.
In this recording, 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.
With solid principles and detailed case examples, Dr. Sears will bring these concepts and methods to life with passion and humour, giving you practical take-aways to use in your very next therapy session!
