Being diagnosed with a personality disorder can be an overwhelming experience. While it may feel frightening, the truth is that getting a proper diagnosis is the first step toward healing. Once you understand what personality disorders are – and how they can be treated – you may feel differently about your diagnosis. Feeling that you’re the only person in the world struggling with these disorders can be alienating but the truth is that as many as 30% of people who seek help for mental health issues are eventually diagnosed with a personality disorder. Thriveworks in Littleton, CO has many mental health professionals like counselors, psychologists, and therapists who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of personality disorders. They can help you feel in control again.

How Are Personality Disorders Treated?

At Thriveworks in Littleton, CO treatment plans for personality disorders are created for individuals, thus there is no A-Z list of steps that everyone follows. However, it’s often the case that the first step is getting emotions under control. Both therapies and medications can help with this. A counselor might use a psychotherapy approach like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in addition to skills training.

Everyone has certain beliefs about themselves, the world, and other people around them. However, a core belief is something that is totally rigid and inflexible. People with personality disorders may need to learn how their specific core beliefs are developed over time and how to break them.

What Are the Types of Personality Disorders?

Personality disorder is an umbrella term for many different types of disorders. Most of these disorders fit into three basic categories which are called “clusters.” A licensed mental health professional at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO will likely use the criteria outlined in the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to determine the nature of someone’s personality disorder.

Cluster A includes paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, and schizotypal personality disorder.

Cluster B includes antisocial personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, and narcissistic personality disorder.

Cluster C includes avoidant personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and obsessive compulsive personality disorder.

The best way to move forward depends on the particular cluster a personality disorder falls under – amongst other criteria.
