This presentation will consider how therapists can use their own hypothesis testing to work with a challenging client presentation; those with Alcohol and other drug addiction along with borderline personality disorder. In order to not get swept up in the emotional deluge and to avoid the behavioral rollercoaster that our clients often engage in, it is important to have a working hypothesis that underpins why we as therapists intervene the way we do.
