Odd and eccentric personality disorders, categorized under Cluster A in the DSM-5, include Paranoid, Schizoid, and Schizotypal Personality Disorders. These disorders are marked by unusual and peculiar behaviors or thoughts, often leading to significant challenges in social interactions and relationships. Individuals with these disorders display behaviors that share similarities with but are not as severe as, those observed in schizophrenia. These behaviors may include extreme suspiciousness, social withdrawal, and idiosyncratic patterns of thinking and perceiving the world. In this webinar, we will discuss the basics, challenges, and treatment of each of the three diagnoses.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Define & Discuss an Overview of Personality Disorder Characteristics & The Cluster A Personality Disorders
