Stopping and preventing partner violence perpetration necessitates understanding why it occurs in the first place. There is no singular explanation for what causes partner abuse perpetration. As with other forms of aggression, determinants vary by individual and by social context. Over the past forty years, more than 20 different theories about what causes partner violence have been put forward, and researchers have debated contentiously whether there are different subtypes of perpetrators and even different varieties of partner abuse, each with its own causal explanation. In this session, Dr. Rothman will present an overview of the most influential theories of partner violence perpetration with a focus on those relevant to adolescent and young adult dating abuse perpetration. The latest developments in the field of partner violence perpetrator counseling and intervention will also be reviewed briefly.

This course is full. For more information, please contact the Borderline Personality Institute Training Institute.

This 3-day course offers training in an empirically validated treatment approach Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP). Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) is a state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatment for patients with personality disorders (PD). While derived from psychoanalytic tradition, TFP has important modifications making it of use to general clinicians today working with patients with significant personality disorder pathology.

TFP offers clinicians an overarching approach to patients with PD symptoms including, but not limited, to patients with borderline personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder. The goals of this workshop include: 1) Introduction to TFP as an individual psychotherapy for patients with personality disorder symptoms, and 2) Introduction to TFP principles of use to clinicians in a variety of treatment settings who may not be offering an extended individual psychotherapy, but nevertheless want assistance in the challenges of treating patients with moderate to severe personality disorder symptoms. TFP Part 1, in October of 2016, focused on setting a foundation of TFP knowledge and its use for treating borderline personality disorder. This course, Transference Focused Psychotherapy Foundational Training Part: Narcissistic Personality Disorder, will focus on narcissistic personality disorder.
