  • Is It All Active Attention-Seeking? Delineating the Histrionic and Turbulent Spectra

    Presenter: Seth Grossman, PsyD

    Topic(s):

    This webinar goes beyond DSM-5 categorical criteria and seeks to uncover and illuminate key motivational distinctions between one personality diagnosis (Histrionic) as delineated by Millon's theory, and another theoretically-based personality prototype, the Turbulent prototype, which shares attention-seeking strategies with the former. Participants will examine how Millon's theory helps delineate distinctions between the two patterns, and identify therapeutic direction.

    As a result of the webinar participants will (1) distinguish between motivating aims of the Histrionic and Turbulent personality patterns; (2) define attention-seeking patterns evidenced by both personality prototypes, as well as potential differences with the presence of other personality influences; and (3) identify treatment directions based on these individual’s motivating aims.

    Presenter: David M. McCord, PhD
