In this 10-minute webinar, trauma expert Dr. Jamie Marich will challenge you to change your thinking about personality disorders. By looking at personality disorders as complex manifestations of trauma, you will be able to view those with personality disorders with more compassion, treat them more effectively, and alleviate your own stress in working with these clients.
