Description

If you believe that most clients who engage in self-destructive behaviors have Borderline Personality Disorder, you may be missing the fact that they have pain and trauma narratives – and you are not approaching treatment in the best way to create healing.

If you think that the choice to cut as opposed to burn – to starve as opposed to binge – is arbitrary, it isn’t. You need to help clients re-frame their behaviors as the inevitable byproducts of affect dysregulation and shame, and help them embrace new ways of addressing them in therapy.

Join international trauma expert and author, Lisa Ferentz, LCSW, for her much praised, experiential seminar and start altering your practice in treating trauma, shame and self-destructive behaviors.

Lisa will give you her proven approach that incorporates psycho-education that teaches your client new coping strategies that help them:

  • Reduce their shame and self-blame narratives
  • Self-soothe and re-claim their affect regulation skills
  • Short-circuit overwhelming thoughts and feelings

Experience one of the top-selling continuing education seminars available on trauma and shame.
