Personality Problems in Young People: Theory, Research and Treatment

October 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Despite the fact that the diagnosis of personality disorder in youth is legitimized in psychiatric nomenclature (DSM 5 and the ICD-11) as well as national treatment guidelines in the United Kingdom and Australia, personality disorder is not routinely assessed for or treated in most child and mental health services; and remains undetected in school settings. Join Dr. Carla Sharp as she dives into this subject and discusses several ways we as professionals can understand and manage the various challenges that arise with teen personality issues.

This CEU event is geared towards Mental Health Professionals.

Cost per Unit: $25 per person
