BGSU at Levis Commons, 1655 N Wilkinson Way, Perrysburg, OH 43551
Jay R. Stewart, PhD, MRC, PCC-S, LICDC, CRC
The people surrounding our clients with personality disorders often need as much help as the actual client. The client and those who care for our clients need to have an understanding of the personality disorder, be able to create their own coping mechanisms,and know when to seek additional intervention through the "rough spots". We will discuss client/caregiver/professional boundaries, client patient confidentiality, and how to support the client's loved one.
1. Overview of personality disorders.
2. Discuss challenges of being a family member of someone with a personality disorder.
3. Identify boundary issues and client confidentiality.
4. How to support the family members of clients in a professional and ethical manner.
