A 6 hour training event with Joseph Zannella, MA, LADC

8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

PRESENTATION: This advanced course is designed to specifically address how to diagnose and treat complex personality disorders among the co-occurring patient population.  The course content is intended to advance the understanding of how to assess and treatment plan with clients who have personality disorders and personality disordered characteristics that interfere with effective treatment. Information on the biological and environmental influences will be discussed; as well as, newer diagnostic guidelines proposed in the DSM-5, and its implications on the treatment planning process. Participants will:

  • Learn how to effectively determine differential diagnosis of the current 10 personality disorders identified in the DSM-5 and will review the new proposed changes;
  • Gain an understanding of how personality disordered functioning develops as it relates to differentiating which symptoms of normal personality functioning are exacerbated in abnormal psychopathology;
  • Be able to discuss diagnostic criteria along a dimensional model of personality functioning;
  •  Gain insights on how to effectively treat complex personality disordered individuals.
