  3. Case formulations, including schema-focused case formulation.
  4. A wide range of therapeutic techniques, including teaching patients emotional self-regulation, communication skills, rational responding, and problem-solving.
  5. Clinical crisis management that keeps BPD and NPD patients safe, sets limits, and preserves hopefulness for both patients and therapists alike.
