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.
