This week we continue our series of discussions about separation-based personality disorders. We will be presenting the third of our eight separation disorders with an in-depth look into the development of paranoid personality disorder. This can be a devastating disorder that makes it impossible to even leave one's home or maintain any type of relationship. This is sure to be a fascinating and meaningful discussion. If you'd like some information about separation-based disorders before attending, please check out Adam's blog linked below.The group is free and worth 1.5 CEU hours.

The discussion of Paranoid Personality Disorder continues this week as we discuss treatment. This will include a review of last week’s information, an opportunity to ask questions and share personal experience and a live role-play in which we ask one of our participants to be in the “hot seat” to treat our acted-out paranoid patient.
