A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder in which you have a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning, and behaving. Types of personality disorders are grouped into three clusters, based on similar characteristics and symptoms. Many people with one personality disorder also have signs and symptoms of at least one additional personality disorder. It’s unnecessary to exhibit all the signs and symptoms listed for a disorder to be diagnosed. Cluster C personality disorders are characterized by anxious, fearful thinking or behavior. They include avoidant personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. In this training we will discuss an overview of “personality” and “disorders” from a historical perspective; explore each Cluster C disorder’s psychological & genetic factors; review the DSM V criteria and how to apply them to determine a diagnosis and treatment to include pharmacology and/or talk therapy.

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

Determine the difference between Fearful Personality Disorders & Discuss the history of PD diagnoses

Identify the Psychological & Genetic Factors of each disorder

Apply the DSM – V Clinical Criteria and Definitions of Each Disorder:  Determining a Diagnosis

Assess Working with Fearful Personality Disorders –  Implementing Pharmacology and Therapy
