It's Not You, It's Me: Personality Disorders in Primary Care
Personality disorders are a class of mental disorders characterized by pervasive maladaptive patterns of behavior, cognition, and inner experience, exhibited across many contexts and deviating from cultural norms. These patterns are inflexible and are associated with distress and impairment. That said, the definitions are controversial. Case examples will illustrate this class of mental disorders, along with suggested non-pharmacological and pharmacological interventions.
- Distinguish human suffering vs. psychopathology.
- Review non-pharmacological interventions for personality disorders.
- Review pharmacological interventions for personality disorders.
