Description

Imagine your sessions with clients with personality disorders. What comes to mind? Challenging? Overwhelming? Frustrating?

What if you had the tools to make each session feel more productive and that you’re actually making progress?

Discover how you can help your client become:

  • More emotionally stable
  • More empathetic
  • More flexible in the way he/she thinks and reacts in trying situations
  • Less reactive

All this is possible once you have developed the skills to help your client modify the rigid, maladaptive traits of obsessive compulsive, narcissistic, antisocial, and borderline personality disorders. You can learn how to utilize the motivations and defenses of these disorders to create lasting improvement.

Join international speaker and author Margaret Wehrenberg, PsyD, as she teaches you practical treatment techniques grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience. Using techniques from DBT, Mindfulness, CBT and EMDR, your clients can learn to rewire their brain to live a healthier, more stable and productive life.
