Rethinking Personality Disorders: The Search for Secure Attachment- Boca Raton, FL

June 21, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

What’s going on when your best efforts to establish a secure therapeutic alliance with a personality-disordered client aren’t working? Before you proclaim a “bad fit” and refer them out, consider changing your approach. In this workshop, you’ll learn why personality disorders may not be disorders at all, but creative ways of coping with painful attachment trauma. Understanding this often-ignored factor can help you more easily develop rapport with troubled clients, avoid frustration, and increase positive outcomes.
In this one-day workshop, you’ll discover how to:
  • Navigate the emotional defenses of clients with different attachment styles
  • Match personality disorder traits with the way trauma shapes the brain to develop more effective treatment strategies
  • Recover from therapeutic missteps when your defenses get triggered
  • Balance your availability and responsiveness with boundaries in ways that won’t jeopardize the therapeutic alliance
  • Foster secure attachment with experiential interventions
Plus, breakfast and lunch are included with the cost of the workshop!
