Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) is a state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatment which offers clinicians an overarching approach for patients with personality disorder symptoms. While TFP is a product of psychoanalytic tradition, the treatment has important modifications making it of use to general clinicians today working with clients with these disorders.
By attending this workshop, you will be introduced to the “Structural interview”, an assessment tool to guide the therapist in treatment recommendations. You will gain the skills to manage the self-destructive and/or suicidal patient by channeling intense emotional states into the therapeutic setting so that they can be understood and mastered instead of being acted out.
You will learn to:
Understand personality as a processing system
Use the techniques of TFP as an individual psychotherapy for patients with personality disorder symptoms
Review the utility of TFP principles to clinicians in a variety of treatment settings who may not be offering an extended individual psychotherapy but want assistance in the challenges of treating patients with moderate to severe personality disorder symptoms
This training is suitable for Mental Health and Medical Professionals, as well as Direct Service Workers.
