CTN Webinar: Personality Disorders and Addiction.

Presented by Thomas M. Kelly, PhD and Dennis C. Daley, PhD (Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, U. Pittsburgh, ATS Node).

Produced by the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network's Clinical Coordinating Center, August 15, 2012

This 90-minute webinar, produced by the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Clinical Coordinating Center for CTN members and the public, promotes positive outcomes for providers and patients working through difficult psychiatric disorders. Patients with DSM-IV defined personality disorders have the highest rates of co-morbid substance use disorders. Recovery from addiction is very difficult for patients with antisocial and borderline features due to the affective dysregulation and impulsiveness that are part of these Axis II conditions. This webinar focuses on the elements of treatment associated with evidence-based treatments (e.g. motivational interviewing, dialectical behavior therapy, relapse prevention therapy, 12-step facilitation therapy) that can be integrated to decrease the risk for relapse among patients with personality disorders.

The target audience includes research/clinical counselors and staff both in the CTN and in the general public. (Webinar, Video, English, 2012)
