CE Video | Treating Personality Disorders: Advances from Brain Science and Traumatology
By: Noel R. Larson, Ph.D., MSW
Clients with personality disorders — narcissistic, borderline, antisocial, sociopathic — often have profound traumatic childhoods, which leave them without a solid inner core from which to function.

Often "nudged" into treatment by others, including the law, their inability to trust and their need for power make forming a therapeutic alliance seemingly impossible. They come armed with defenses developed at very early ages that are designed to ensure their survival by protecting their fragility.

In this recording, you'll explore practical, effective interventions informed by neuroscience that help clients safely manage frightening symptoms, including violence and emotional meltdowns, and develop healthier boundaries and a more differentiated sense of self.
