Psychotherapy With Personality Disorders

Psychotherapy With Personality Disorders

Since personality represents who someone is at the deepest level, it is understandable that
many people with personality disorders resist the idea that they have a fundamental
dysfunction with their personality. Even when clients acknowledge that their personality
problems are at the heart of their interpersonal problems, they often find it difficult to
change. As the mental health professional, how do you overcome this challenge and
effectively counsel these clients?
This week, as you explore psychotherapy with personality disorders, you examine
therapeutic approaches to treating clients with personality and interpersonal problems.
