  • Get inside the minds of challenging clients and manage treatment blockades

Join expert and author, Dr. Daniel J. Fox, as he delivers an intensive workshop and seminar designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to accurately identify and treat your most difficult personality disordered clients. Solve the mystery of antisocial, narcissist, histrionic and borderline clients and finally make a breakthrough in clinical treatment.

  • Navigate through the mind of a histrionic whose intense emotions and need for attention will test your patience and compassion.
  • Help the borderline client deal with their explosive emotions, self- harm tendencies and cravings for chaos.

Case studies and video examples will be used to illustrate client symptom presentation, treatment, and management of each Cluster B client type. You will explore various modalities that are effective with antisocial, narcissistic, histrionic, and borderline personality disorders, such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral, Interpersonal, and Dialectical therapies. Each of these theories will be explored to provide you with solid and useable skills to include in your daily practice.
