name is Tracy Catherine Appleton. I will be the narrator of this CD. We appreciate that
you have chosen us as a vehicle for you to earn your Continuing Education Credit.
purpose of the course is to assist you in increasing your knowledge regarding
how to treat patients, clients, with Borderline Personality Disorders. As each
case study is given, if the concepts seem to be applicable to your situation,
I encourage you to turn your CD player off and make a few notes regarding the
application of the principle to your setting. However, these notes are for your
purposes only and are not to be sent to the Institute. Also each track is very
content dense. So feel free to replay the track to review the content either for
your own purposes, or if you feel appropriate play the track in an individual
or group session for client education. Also permission is granted to reproduce
this CD. We encourage you to duplicate give copies of this CD to colleagues, clients,
etc. as you deem appropriate. We feel the information on our CD's is valuable.
Thus, we have an interest in distributing CD's in as many ways as possible, to
benefit the greatest number of people, who have a need and are receptive to this
Each of the questions that are included
on this CD is reprinted in your Answer Booklet. These questions are sequential
and deal with the section of content that preceded it. For this reason, to facilitate
the answering of each question, you might read the question from the Answer Booklet
prior to listening to that CD track. By knowing what the question is ahead of
time, you will then know the content to listen for that contains the answer. So
just a hint, after you write down the answer to a question in your Answer Booklet,
read on to the next question in order to give you a "heads up" to listen
for the content that contains the answer to the next question. Each answer is
only used once. Keep in mind there is nothing trick or hard about these questions.
They are merely intended to verify the playing of this CD.
the purpose of brevity, most generally, I will use the term "therapists"
or "mental health professional." However, don't let these terms deter
you from applying the concepts to your situations. When you hear the word "therapists,"
if your job title is social worker, psychologist, marriage and family therapist,
mental health counselor, professional counselor, resident director, program assistant,
etc. merely substitute the appropriate term that is the most meaningful to you.
In short, don't let my use of the term "therapists" cognitively set
you off track from hearing the content because your job title is school counselor,
for example. I will also use the term "client" for the purposes of brevity.
However, if you deal with patients, residents, students, consumers, etc., transpose
"client" for the term that is the most meaningful to you in your work
On this CD set we will discuss such topics as: steps
in Schema Therapy, Pattern Schemas, and Maladaptive Schemas.
