Additional Information

Personality Disorders present a challenging and complex backdrop to patients and their clinical presentation.  Personality disorders are defined by rigid maladaptive patter of responding to interpersonal interactions and experiences.  Often patients with these disorders are mismanaged in the health care system because of our lack of understanding related to the origin and symptoms of the disorders. This presentation will review the personality disorders focusing on the prevalence, sociocultural factors, genetics and experienced factors. The DSM V criteria for the most prevalent disorders will be reviewed. A case study will be presented for group discussion.
