Clients with borderline personality disorder are notoriously hard to work with. They act dependent, push boundaries and project rage in their attempts to get therapists to think for them and take care of them which is exactly what they do not need. This webinar will go over the primary issues in BPD and explain how to develop an effective therapeutic alliance with a client with BPD. Additionally, it will offer an overview of the Disorders of the Self triad, which offers insight into abandonment depression and the acting out behaviors typical of people with BPD.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain how to develop a therapeutic alliance with a borderline client
- Draw out the Disorders of the Self triad
- Define abandonment depression
