Do you work with clients with personality disorders or chronic problems?
Hear a concise summary of the cognitive theory of personality disorders which provides a compassionate, non-pathological view of these client problems. Learn about the central role core beliefs (also called schemas) play in the development of personality disorders.
Are you curious what strategies help cognitive therapists successfully treat clients with personality disorders?
Principles are presented which guide therapists in how to use a continuum as one of two key methods to help build new core beliefs. Christine Padesky demonstrates creative use of a continuum to shift a core belief that, people cant be trusted in a client with borderline personality disorder.
The second key method is use of core belief records (described in Chapter 9 of her co-authored book, Mind Over Mood) which provide the critical data that can help clients develop new, more adaptive core beliefs about themselves, others, and the world.
The development of new core beliefs is central to the successful cognitive therapy of personality disorders.
Learn how to use core belief records in tandem with continuum methods to help even your most challenging clients begin to change core beliefs.
