Join Dr. Kenneth Cairns as he delivers an intensive workshop and seminar designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to identify and treat your most difficult personality disordered clients. Better understand your clients with Antisocial, Narcissist, Histrionic and Borderline Personality Disorder and make a breakthrough in clinical treatment.
• Manage the manipulative and possibly violent Antisocial Personality Disorder in-session.
• Overcome the Narcissistic Personality Disorder trait of perfectionism and combat their need to overpower you as the therapist.
• Better understand your clients diagnosed with Histrionic Personality Disorder whose intense emotions and need for attention will test your patience and compassion.
• Help the Borderline Personality Disorder client deal with their explosive emotions, self-harm tendencies and cravings for chaos.
Case studies and video examples will be used to illustrate client symptom presentation, treatment, and management of each Cluster B client type. You will explore various modalities that are effective with antisocial, narcissistic, histrionic, and borderline personality disorders, such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral, Interpersonal, and Dialectical therapies. Each of these theories will be explored to provide you with solid and useable skills to include in your daily practice.
