A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder in which you have a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning, and behaving. A person with a personality disorder has trouble perceiving and relating to situations and people. This causes significant problems and limitations in relationships, social activities, work, and other intrapersonal activities.
In some cases, a person may not realize that they have a personality disorder because their way of thinking and behaving seems natural to them. And you may blame others for the challenges you face. In this webinar, we will examine three of the most commonly diagnosed Emotional Disorders: Borderline (aka Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder), Histrionic, and Narcissist. Learn how to diagnose based on DSM criteria and about the Evidence-Based treatment methodologies used to work with clients diagnosed with these disorders.
