PROGRAM TITLE: Treatment of Narcissistic and Severe Personality Disorders: Theoretical and Clinical Contributions
SUBJECT: The main goal of this seminar is to apply a theoretical framework to your direct clinical work with patients with severe personality disorders.
DESCRIPTION: This is an opportunity to get assistance with some of your most challenging patients. The goal of this seminar is to increase the therapist’s theoretical knowledge base and assist with techniques and interventions when working with challenging patients. Initially, seminar participants will learn how to assess and identify the characteristics of the patient’s personality disorder. Once a formulation is made and understood from a theoretical and conceptual framework, the group leader will demonstrate how to translate this into specific therapy techniques.Seminar participants will read one article or one book chapter per week. Some of the most prominent theories and seminal work on severe personality disorders will be reviewed, such as an object relations perspective on narcissistic personality disorders, ego psychology, and developmental theory including the early mother-child relationship. Clinical examples will help guide the group through selected literature.
COST: $200
