90 Minute Workshop

Consultation Clinic: the Treatment of Did with Personality Disorder (Axis II) Comorbidity

Saturday, March 24
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
Location: Salon 2

 The difficulties of treating complex trauma and dissociative conditions produce numerous times of confusion, uncertainty and lack of clarity about effective treatment approaches.  When “Axis II” comorbidity is added, treatment considerations become even more difficult.  After an overview discussion of personality disorder issues, including assessment and identification of “Axis II” comorbidity, participants will be invited to discuss treatment and management issues they encounter in their practice settings.  Treatment strategies will be discussed along with the unique transference and countertransference circumstances that arise in treating this population.  The resistance points and treatment impasses which are a frequent part of the treatment will be identified and suggestions will be shared.  Participants should disguise their clinical material so as not to compromise patient/client privacy and the workshop will not be taped.
