Borderline Personality Disorder or BPD is characterized by volatile moods that negatively impact one's self-image, thought processes, and personal relationships. Symptoms include rapidly fluctuating mood swings with periods of intense despair and irritability and/or apprehension, which can last a few hours to a few days. People with BPD become overwhelmed and incapacitated by the intensity of their emotions, whether it is joy and elation or depression, anxiety, or rage.
BPD is an extraordinary challenging, difficult, and complex disorder to treat.. Plain and simple, it can be hard on both the client and the psychothreapist. In this brief presentation, Sarah Peterman, A talented BPD psychotherapist, will share her experiences, recommendations and suggestions for BPD treatment and therapist self-care. Topics to be included:
The event is for Psychotherapists who are seeking to network. Limit 50 registrants. Fills up quickly.
Most mental health practitioners understand that networking and marketing are vital components to the development and maintenance of a clinical practice. Our livelihoods rest on our ability to bring in new clients, receive referrals and develop strategies to create revenue-generating services. Think about it: How many times has someone mentioned another therapist's name and you had no clue who they were?
Because there are so many of us who are unintentionally disconnected from the greater mental health community, Clinical Care Consultants is sponsoring psychotherapist networking events. Clinical Care Consultants has successfully sponsored this event for over two years. It is an ideal place for Chicago and Chicago Suburban area therapists to meet, get to know each other, and network. We are proud of this event as it has already resulted in many new professional relationships as well as a mutual exchange of referrals.
The 2-hour event will be scheduled approximately every three months. A continental breakfast will be served. The typical meeting will consist of greeting and socializing, introductions, scheduled presentations from members, trainings about marketing and networking and more networking. Guest speakers will be invited.
This event will take place at the Alcott Center at the Buffalo Grove Park District at 530 Bernard Drive in Buffalo Grove. For further information, please email ccc@ClinicalCareConsultants.Click Here to Register
