Do we really know what personality disorders are? Why do people really develop personality disorders? Do personality disorders respond to treatment? Why do some patients and clients respond while others do not? Is it the client? Is it the clinician’s fault? Is it the failure of the treatment modality?

As such a highly prevalent condition, it is essential for you to fully understand personality disorders and how to address them. Please join us and learn how to do just that.

This 6-CEU full day workshop on personality disorders is an opportunity for you, clinicians, to have the tools you need to start doing things differently, help your clients end their suffering, and thereby increase the experience of Freedom for our patients and clients.

"Both facilitators are friendly and will reinforce the content of the topic by going over it several times." - Diana, LCSW-R
