Angry Birds: Pushing for Anger in Cluster C Personality Disorders
An ISST Webinar with Ruth McCutcheon and Saskia Ohlin

Clients with Cluster C traits can struggle with expressing anger in a healthy way due to aversive early life experiences of anger which led to the development of maladaptive coping modes, posing a challenge to clinicians.

This webinar explores the following areas:

1). Formulating anger in Cluster C clients

2). Techniques to facilitate working with anger in Cluster C clients during different phases of treatment

3). Therapist stance in facilitating anger

4). Therapist tools for managing their own schemas in working with anger


Watch live demonstrations using chairwork and imagery rescripting to help equip clinicians with skills in helping to facilitate the expression of healthy anger while working with avoidant clients.
