Personality Disorders

Personality disorders exist when personality traits are inflexible and maladaptive and cause either significant impairment in social or occupational functioning or subjective distress. Characteristic features are typical of the individual’s long-term functioning and are not limited to discrete episodes of illness. Diagnosis requires deeply ingrained, maladaptive patterns of behavior associated with one of the following:

  • Seclusiveness or autistic thinking.
  • Pathologically inappropriate suspiciousness or hostility.
  • Oddities of thought, perception, speech and behavior.
  • Persistent disturbances of mood or affect.
  • Pathological dependence, passivity, or aggressiveness.
  • Intense and unstable interpersonal relationships and impulsive and damaging behavior.
