This book uses worksheets, checklists and other exercises to diagnose these specific personality disorders, reduce problematic symptoms and keep therapy moving forward in treatment. The concrete tools in this workbook provide assistance to the frontline clinician who may be stuck or feel that he is out of options when working with this complex group of individuals. The book pulls from multiple therapeutic modalities that include interpersonal, object relations, CBT and DBT. Exercises seek to improve attachment, collaboration and trust; assess transference and countertransference issues; and reduce self-mutilation and other risky behaviours. There is a wealth of information in this workbook that provides a framework and a level of confidence for the therapist facing the challenges of treating severe personality disorders.
