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.

What you’ll learn

At the end of this online seminar, you will have:

  1. Learned the function of personality disorders, what they are and why people develop them.
  2. Learned interventions designed to specifically address the thinking patterns of those living with personality disorders.
  3. Participated in a case scenario and learned to apply the skills and strategies to your work with your patients and clients.
  4. Received your certificates by email after your post-tests and evaluations are completed.

Course modules that will be covered:

  1. New Strategies for Working with Clients with Borderline Personality Disorder
  2. CBT and Cognitive Distortions
  3. CBT and Cognitive Restructuring

There will be approximately two 15-minute breaks and a 1-hour lunch break.

Here’s what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:

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

“I only signed up for one class to see if I would learn anything and if it would be a good experience. I plan on paying the membership dues and becoming a member. I was VERY impressed. I learned more with this webinar than I did attending a class last week.” – Jodie, LMSW

“I like the way the facilitator was able to answer questions on the spot, with great detail and warmth. He then was able to go back to the webinar agenda.” – Karol, LCSW

“The overall experience has been good; the topics are interesting and well-presented, and the technology makes attending easy.” – Heather, LGSW

“I am truly appreciative of the SWEET Institute as I am striving to return to the work. Your approach assists me as a refresher for modalities learned in the past, as well as didactic learning of new concepts.” – Rosina, LMSW
