A diagnosis of a personality disorder can carry a stigma for both client and clinician. These diagnoses are often considered more challenging to treat. Participants in this workshop will be able to demonstrate understanding of the alternative DSM-5 model, particularly with regard to how it will improve their ability to assess and approach treatment to clients with impairments in personality functioning and personality traits. They will learn through discussion how to identify how the alternative model deviates from and expands upon the current model, and the implications for clinical practice. Participants will engage in case study to apply the alternative model to clinical practice and by the end of the workshop, participants will be able to describe major facets of the alternative model, and identify potential applications to clinical practice
