System of Care Trainings
Working with Individuals Diagnosed with Personality Disorders
The biggest stigma towards personality disorders comes from practitioners, not patients. We have spent a great deal of time avoiding naming the problem to the detriment of our patients. Personality disorders are not rare; in fact, they are extremely common: orbit conditions in chronic psychiatric illness. There is hope for the population and positive ways to approach it. This seminar will begin to introduce some of these topics, including shifting away from the idea of a personality disorder and more towards a notion of severe coping skill deficit.
Adult Providers and Youth Providers are encouraged to attend this training.
One Size Does Not Fit All: A Strengths-Based Treatment Approach for Adolescents
Understanding and taking into consideration individual personality, strengths, and weaknesses is something that’s not generally taught in clinical or teacher education. However, it is absolutely critical if we are to help patients and students with complicated emotional and psychiatric needs. As a former educator and school administrator turned psychiatrist, Dr. Vint Blackburn’s approach is unique when it comes to assessing patients. Blending educational theory with behavioral health concepts lends itself to a different way of conceptualizing and working with troubled individuals with poor coping skills. This workshop will help both educators and mental health professionals identify and work with this at-risk population.
