Webinar Description

Do you ever feel manipulated, controlled, or lied to?Do you serve clients, or are in any relationships with people that have intense, irrational rages that seem to come out of nowhere?Do you feel like you are walking on eggshells to avoid confrontations or constantly upsetting someone?If the answer is yes, then you are likely interacting with someone that may have borderline personality disorder (BPD), narcissism or other challenging personality traits.People compare working or living with someone that has borderline personality disorder, or other personality disorders to:Living in a pressure cooker with thin walls and a faulty safety valve.Living in a perpetual oxymoron. It’s a seemingly endless host of contradictions.Feeling like you are going through the spin cycle on a washing machine. The world is whirling around, and you have no idea which way is up, down or sideways.In this training, we will explore strategies to more effectively serve and interact with people that have, or demonstrate the traits of, people with borderline personality disorder, narcissism, and other challenging personalities.You will learn: (Learning Objectives)
