Item Description Back to top
Handling a client with a personality disorder can be difficult and time consuming, especially in family law cases where emotions typically run high. But do you know how to recognize a true personality disorder? How is it different from one`s ordinary personality? Using mock client interviews and court proceedings, our instructors illustrate the characteristics of common personality disorders, such as avoidant, borderline, and narcissistic personality disorders. They offer practical tips for effectively representing such a client, or declining representation if necessary. Also learn what to do if you suspect your client is truly mentally disabled. 

This course was recorded in April 2011 at PBI’s Family Law Institute, our flagship family law program that provides the latest practical information and practice hints available. Other sessions from this Institute are available at PBI’s Online Campus.
