Self-Study Webinar

2 CEU Credits for LMSWs, LCSWs, and LMHCs

Characterized by a long-term pattern of an unstable sense of self, unstable relationships with others, and profound difficulties with self-regulation, Borderline Personality Disorder is the most common of the 10 personality disorders among those seeking treatment.

A lack of purpose and direction in treatment has been one of the factors contributing to feeling drained when working with clients living with Borderline Personality Disorder. This draining propensity is rather common; it adds to negative countertransference and leads to clinician resistance to working with these patients and clients. However, there are well established skills for working effectively.

This is the first webinar in a series on Borderline Personality Disorder.

AT THE END OF THIS WEBINAR, YOU WILL

  • Learn critical thinking in clinical care
  • Learn the principles and techniques to working with patients and clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder
  • Learn the do's and don'ts when working with patients and clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder
  • Role play, practice, and implement new strategies to working with patients and clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder
  • Identify your areas for improvement and be empowered to start implementation in your clinical practice
  • Immerse yourself in the Socratic Method, the Desire Method, and the Collective Learning experience and enhance your ability to provide excellent care, prevent burnout and promote self-care
  • 2 CEU Credits for LMSWs, LCSWs, and LMHCs.

What is the SWEET Institute?
SWEET’s vision is to facilitate the empowerment of all clinicians, advocates, and agencies, and in turn, that of patients and clients they serve. Through empowerment, self-care will be promoted, burnout will be prevented, and excellent patient/client care will be upheld. At SWEET, we emphasize “the Why, the How, the What, and Then What, while using the Socratic and Desire Methods. SWEET’s mission is to facilitate empowerment through education, multimodal trainings, and a community established for all clinicians, advocates, and agencies, so we can all grow together.
How different are these webinars? Will I be able to interact with the Course Facilitator(s)?
Absolutely. One of the keystone paradigms of the SWEET Institute is the collective learning process. This is accomplished using the Socratic Method and is based on the most up-to-date adult learning theories. Integrating this process into our in-person seminars and live webinars creates a unique and dynamic learning experience for all of us. It is essential to us that a comfortable learning environment is created, so that anyone who attends our webinars or in-person seminars participate and are able to take risks and push themselves to gain deeper knowledge. In our webinars, this will be done through our chat feature. Also, both Mardoche and Karen are available for consultation and clarification following webinars and in-person seminars or by email at [email protected]
