Therapy for Personality Disorders

Personality disorders entail a maladaptive way of behaving, feeling, and thinking that deviate from societal and cultural norms. They may lead to personal distress, interpersonal issues, harmful behaviors, and legal issues. Personality disorders include paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal, antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic, avoidant, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. They are treatable but not curable. Working with a therapist who specializes in personality disorders may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of life.
