This Virtual Workshop is part of the MaMHCA Summer Institute series. This 4-day training is available with Special Pricing.  Pre Registration is required


 Clients with personality disorders can be very challenging because of how they experience their world.  Ideally, these clients would be able to engage in long-term treatment, but it is more realistic these days for them to have access to short-term treatment.

This advanced level workshop will discuss ways to do effective short-term work with clients who are likely to need long-term counseling. We will focus on some of the more prevalent personality disorders who present for out-patient counseling, determine which clients are best suited to short-term treatment approaches, and discuss specific ways to engage clients who have a personality disorder. 

PLEASE HAVE A DSM-IV or IV-TR or A DSM-5 with you during the workshop.


NOTE:  participants must attend all 4 mornings to receive 12 CEUs
