Personality diagnostics is deemed to be one of the most inspiring and useful topics for therapists in psychology. A paradigm of "personality disorder" classified as a form of psychic pathology has gained utmost spread and scientific evidence among a diversity of approaches describing distortion of personality. At the same time, there are personality deviations from normal functioning not reaching the level of being a pathology so far. This so-called "gap" was compensated for due to the concept of personality adaptations that has been successfully developed during the recent 4 decades within TA framework. Along with that, this concept demonstrates a number of "weak" points that do not allow to expand beyond TA as a "scientifically proven" one. So why is this the case? The pros and cons of this problem will be presented at the forthcoming training within the discussion session featuring the well-known new wave TA analyst Mark Widdowson and a professor and a psychiatrist, a laureate of EATA Golden Medal, Dmitry Shustov.
In the course of the training you will be able to structure and deepen your knowledge on personality pathology as well as address your questions to masters of TA about the peculiar features of personality adaptations.
By tradition at the end of the training Mark Widdowson who is our guest will conduct a supervision!
