About personality disorders and dysfunction training courses for therapists

The field of personality disorders and dysfunction is a constantly evolving one, and not everyone has the same understanding of what it means to have a personality disorder. It is therefore important for mental health professionals to be familiar with the latest thinking on personality dysfunction, and how someone with a personality disorder may think, feel and act very differently to the average person.

As we are aware, there are various types of personality disorders. The full range of recognised personality disorders – ranging from the likes of paranoid personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) to avoidant personality disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) – is associated with many different symptoms and diagnostic criteria.

In the event that someone is diagnosed with a personality disorder, they are likely to benefit from talking therapy as a treatment. If this is your own field of practice, you will most likely engage in a dialogue with your clients in order to gain a greater understanding of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This, in turn, may enable you to pinpoint strategies of use to your client, and support any necessary changes in attitudes and behaviour on their way to recovery.

Someone may be treated for a personality disorder over several months or even years, depending on their specific problems and the severity of their condition. This provides all the more reason for you to continually equip yourself with the latest knowledge and skills as a mental health practitioner pursuing the optimal results for your clients.
