Training and Consultation

  

Training and Education

Through lecture, demonstration, role-play, and questions/answers, Dr. Diggs, with the assistance of our staff, demystify the complex behaviors associated with personality disorders and teach specific treatment techniques.

Training can be arranged for small or large groups at your site or organization and customized to meet your specific interests. Dr. Diggs can also work with therapists in live sessions.

Consultation

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting out, we can work with you individually to utilize the skills and knowledge that you already have to deepen your understanding of personality disorders and how to provide effective treatment. We provide consultation and guidance for individual cases or help you find new and creative solutions to your therapeutic approach. Individual or group consultation on your open cases with Dr. Diggs can quickly move treatment forward.

Description

Object relations remains the best and most helpful theory for understanding personality disorder. Yet, object relations models don’t adequately explain the highly dynamic reality of these conditions, leaving therapists with a limited understanding of how to provide effective treatment. UNTIL NOW!! After 20 years of research, study, and practice, Nysa Therapy has made a major breakthrough in understanding and treating personality disorders. We’ve developed a unique and dynamic model of object relations.
