Event description

Description

Course Instructor: Bradley Hedges, Ph.D., PCC-S, Psychologist

CE/Us: 6 Counselors, Social Workers, Psychologists

Course Description:

Traditional training for mental health practitioners often fails to recognize the prevalence and impact of pathological personality structures on our clients’ ability to function—tending to focus more on organic conditions. This training attempts to help practitioners understand how personality disorders serve to interfere with functioning, delineate the personality disorders from one another and from other conditions, and identify broad intervention strategies for addressing personality disorders.

Goals:

  • Increase knowledge and understanding of the core features of personality disorders.
  • Increase diagnostic skills using DSM-5 classifications and criteria.
  • Increase awareness of current best practice/intervention in treating individuals with personality disorders.

Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify the current personality disorders identified in the DSM 5.
  • Using the DSM-5 criteria participants will differentiate the various personality disorders from one another and from other mental health conditions.
  • Participants will identify broad evidence-based intervention strategies effective in the treatment of personality disorders.
  • Through the use of case review participants will demonstrate the ability to create a plan for effective intervention.

Outline:

  1. Overview of personality disorders
  2. Evolving conceptualization of personality
  3. Effective Diagnosing of personality disorders
  4. Intervention strategies
  5. Case examples

Level: Intermediate
