Personality Disorder Therapy

Personality disorders are famously tough to treat without the help of mental health treatment programs. If affected by a personality disorder, you may want to seek out personality disorder therapy.

According to the American Psychiatric Association, personality is the way one thinks, feels, and behaviors that make a person different from others.

An individual’s personality is influenced by many factors, including temperament, childhood experiences, environment, and inherited characteristics.

Doctor characterize Personality Disorders as a group of mental illnesses with rigid and unhealthy ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving that causes impairments in functioning and lasts over time.

Personality disorders can range from mild to severe and require Personality Disorders Therapy.

In addition, personality disorders are Axis II disorders that include borderline obsessive-compulsive, paranoid, and avoidant personality disorder profiles.

Doctors treat Personality Disorders with group and individual therapy services. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is one treatment regimen we utilize due to its effectiveness in treating Personality Disorders.

DBT will assist in regulating emotions, tolerating distress, being mindful of the present, and having healthy relationships. Medication regimens may treat the symptoms of personality disorders such as impulsivity, irritability, or anxiety.

Personality disorders are deeply rooted beliefs that lead to a person behaving in a certain way. Also, these beliefs are often learned during childhood and carried as a filter for perception later in life.

In addition, the person may not realize these deeply ingrained beliefs, and a therapist may never know that they exist if they are unable to reach a high level of trust.

People with personality disorders tend to drop out of treatment at a higher rate. This has made it hard for researchers to collect data and fully understand the condition.

Personality disorders can be harmful to those with them and the ones around them. People with personality disorders will usually act out at themselves or toward others. For example, people with a borderline personality disorder will tend to hurt themselves.

This is to get relief from negative emotions they are having about themselves. While people with an avoidant personality disorder may be manipulative because they believe that all people are manipulative, and if they do it first, they have the upper hand.

WHAT ARE COMMON SYMPTOMS OF PERSONALITY DISORDERS?

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fifth Edition (DSM-5), There are three categories or clusters of personality disorders based on common symptoms.

Cluster A Personality Disorders are characterized by eccentric and unusual thinking and behaviors. Cluster A Personality Disorders include:

  • Paranoid Personality Disorder: Pattern of distrust and suspiciousness of others and perception that others are deceiving them.
  • Schizoid Personality Disorder: Detachment from relationships, restricted range of emotional expression, and prefer solitary activities.
  • Schizotypal Personality Disorder: Eccentric behaviors, excessive social anxiety, superstitious and cognitive distortions.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN PERSONALITY DISORDER THERAPY

Personality disorder treatment will know what you are going through. In addition, they will work with you to help you to get a hold of your confusing behaviors and emotions. Having a personality disorder is not the end of the world, and with a bit of work, people can live normal lives.

When you go into mental health treatment,  you will be assessed for the severity of your symptoms. Also, this is where you'll learn if you're staying at the facility or not. Getting help for your personality disorder is brave, be proud of yourself!

IN A MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY, YOU WILL BE:

  • Taken care of around the clock
  • Allowed the time to focus on yourself and your progress
  • You will be in many different types of therapy and self-exploratory programs
  • You will learn about good nutrition while you are in the care of professionals

Sometimes people with a personality disorder need to take the time to really work through their deeply embedded issues to live a full and happy life.

Taking the time to focus on your condition will help you to get around the patient-provider trust issues.

Putting yourself in a situation where others are experiencing the same thing can also help you to relate to other’s experiences and be able to process your own.
