Description

  • DSM-5® controversy and DSM-5.1® proposed changes
  • Cutting edge therapeutic strategies
  • Address the major challenges of each disorder
  • Get “unstuck” with your most difficult clients

Personality disordered individuals are often considered to be the most difficult clients for clinicians to treat effectively. Clearing the fog surrounding the different conditions and getting to the core of each individual is vital to successful treatment outcomes for these trying and complicated cases. National CBT and personality disorders expert, Dr. Jeff Riggenbach, will help you navigate through the current conceptualizations, controversies, and misconceptions related to personality disorders and describe the latest evidence-based treatment options for these individuals who often leave clinicians feeling frustrated, stuck, and disheartened. Dr Riggenbach will discuss the DSM-5® and the controversy surrounding the decisions made regarding personality disorders, and more importantly, help you get “unstuck” with your most difficult patients.

Drawing from the most recent literature, clinical trials, case studies and clinical experience, Dr. Riggenbach will ensure that you leave this training with specific and practical strategies that you can implement in your clinical practice tomorrow.
