Presentation Type: Mini Workshop

Why do patients with personality disorders sometimes pose such a challenge in treatment? Why do they miss sessions, criticize the therapist, blame others, display hopelessness about change, fail to do homework, engage in self-harm, use substances, and engage in other kinds of dysfunctional behavior? This master class will focus on conceptualizing why patients use these kinds of therapy-interfering coping strategies and on interventions clinicians can use to address these problems.

We will discuss the specific set of beliefs and coping strategies that characterize various personality disorders; the longitudinal cognitive conceptualization of clients; using the conceptualization to plan treatment; and specialized strategies to develop and maintain a strong therapeutic alliance and carry out the tasks of treatment.

These skills will be demonstrated through discussion, role-play, video, and question/answer.
