Live – Micro-Certificate in Full Cluster DSM-5 Personality Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment

Live – Micro-Certificate in Full Cluster DSM-5 Personality Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment

**This is a special 2-day, 12-CE didactic micro-certificate program resulting in a PD-PT(i)® post-nominal credential through Mind Works Professional Education, Inc. **

Most clinicians assume they don’t need to know how to work with personality disorders because “that’s not the population I treat.” With the U.S. about 4% higher than the global average, about 10% of the American population meets criteria for a DSM-5 Personality Disorder (WebMD, 2021). Many more, closer to 30-40% of individuals in the U.S. carry at least two or more common features of a personality disorder. Comorbidity rates in this population for other mental health concerns like anxiety, mood disorders, impulse control, and substance abuse are much higher at 20-50%. If you work with trauma or substance abuse, you’re likely seeing personality disorders in 60-90% of those patients. Since prognosis for individuals with PD’s is relatively poor (i.e. these features are generally regarded as “fixed”), it is that much more important for clinicians to learn how to work with common PD behaviors and cognitions in order to be effective in their work.  

Personality disordered individuals are often considered to be some of the most difficult consumers of mental health services for therapists to treat effectively. Clearing the fog surrounding the different conditions and getting to the core of each individual client is vital to a successful treatment outcome. Drawing from the most recent literature, outcome trials, case studies and 20 years of clinical experience, Jeff Riggenbach, PhD will describe the latest evidence-based treatment options and show you how to avoid common pitfalls and therapeutic traps of these individuals who often leave clinicians feeling frustrated, stuck, and disheartened.

In this 2-day live and interactive micro-certification program, Jeff will describe each of the DSM-5 personality disorders and give you simple but effective engagement, management, and treatment techniques for each. Empirically supported strategies from DBT, CBT, and Schema Therapy will be incorporated into an integrated treatment approach that will transform the way your work with this challenging population. You will leave this experience not only with a new credibility marker, but most importantly you’ll leave feeling revitalized, hopeful, and more confident than ever to take on the hardest clients. Come away equipped with a new, comprehensive, empowering approach to assess, conceptualize, and treat this difficult population in a way that offers hope for clients and reinvigoration for providers.

Self-Regulation Skills for Kids & Teens to Reduce Trauma, Anxiety, & More

Self-Regulation Skills for Kids & Teens to Reduce Trauma, Anxiety, & More

 

For those who see kids and teens in therapy, restoring a young person’s ability to self-regulate their emotions can be a challenging, yet extremely important undertaking. While we think of self-regulation as an early skill important for social, emotional, and academic growth, it is also key to a healthy, enjoyable, independent, and interconnected adulthood later in life.

Join us for an informative and interactive workshop discovering play-based mindfulness strategies for resilience and regulation at all ages. Different techniques will engage different kids and teens through arts, sports, games, music, technology and more, for attention spans ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.

This practical workshop will focus on adapting skills for individuals and groups of all ages and settings. Learning differences, cultural differences, and developmental differences will be explored, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. We will discuss tailoring techniques to a range of presenting issues including depression, anxiety, ADHD, executive function challenges, addiction, impulse control difficulties, trauma, and stress.

 

Cost: $105 – Want to attend this course and any future event or course from our CE library for FREE and unlimited for the cost of $34.99/month for 12 months??!! Check out our Everything Plan here.

Objectives:

This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:

a). Learn and understand how to use mindfulness in creative ways that break through resistance and maximize engagement both in and out of the clinical hour.

b). Explore and practice specific strategies to tailor self-regulation to a diagnosis and development.

c). Learn and explore dozens of proven practices that help children with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other common presenting concerns.

d). Understand and explore the exciting neuroscience behind mindfulness and productive and helpful ways to share that information with kids and families.

Live – Neural Desensitization to Accelerate Trauma Recovery: NDIT Level 2 Training (Dec 2024)

Live – Neural Desensitization to Accelerate Trauma Recovery: NDIT Level 2 Training (Dec 2024)

**This is a special two-day, 15-CE live webinar event**

 

IMPORTANT: We suggest you complete NDIT Level 1 Training (either live or now available as home study), before completing this NDIT Level 2 Training**

 

Learn advanced NDIT concepts, including a deep, didactic exploration of how to use NDIT to treat more complicated developmental trauma. Dr. Sweeton will build on the foundational concepts of each module taught in NDIT Level 1 training, and work participants toward a more thorough understanding of Module 5, Trauma Processing, neural integration, and resource creation.

 

NOTE: This is advanced NDIT Level 2 training, which will qualify attendees for credit toward overall NDIT Certification (anticipated to be available beginning 2025).

Several evidence-informed approaches to trauma can be immensely helpful to clients. However, many of these therapies are either rigid and overly prescriptive, making it difficult to stay client-centered, or vague, mainly rooted in theory.

Neural Desensitization and Integration Training (NDIT) is a module-based, exposure, trauma-focused approach to therapy for PTSD that integrates elements from EMDR, multichannel eye movement integration, prolonged exposure, IFS, and somatic therapies. The main goal of NDIT is to help clients titrate into processing traumatic material, so that flooding and retraumatization are minimized. NDIT is also evidence-informed and flexible, which encourages clinicians to create individualized, client-focused trauma treatment plans that can be easily integrated with other therapies.

Additionally, NDIT focuses on what clients do outside of session, and ways to facilitate progress though homework exercises. This one-day training will introduce you to basic trauma processing skills of NDIT, that you can begin incorporating into your practice right away.

This NDIT Level II training builds on the basic skills taught in the NDIT Level I training, and presents clinicians with more advanced skills, including ways to use NDIT when working with complex trauma. A substantial part of NDIT Level II training focuses on Module 5, Trauma Processing, and the complexity of doing this work with clients. In addition, NDIT Level II training introduces clinicians to neural integration, and the identification and creation of resources.
