This is the second part of a two-part series.

In this webinar, we dive into treating personality disorders with a strengths-based approach.

Up to 30 percent of people who require mental health services have at least one personality disorder that will likely not remit without professional intervention. Exactly what that intervention should consist of remains a subject for debate.

New theories on the underlying emotional regulation, interpersonal styles, and thought patterns characteristic of personality disorders have laid the groundwork for developing treatment interventions.

Join us and learn how a strengths-based approach based on providing support, empathy, and validation can be tailored to the individual to effect stages of change.
