THERAPY APPROACHES FOR PERSONALITY DISORDERS
Due to the many possible manifestations of personality disorders, the search for the ideal therapy is quite complicated. Psychotherapeutic therapy methods, however, seem to be the most effective form of treatment to date. Adapted to the individual needs of the patients, individual as well as group therapies can be offered for most forms of personality disorders. It is important that our therapists have the opportunity to engage with the perspective of those affected. As the cooperation of the patients is of utmost importance, we recommend this type of therapy especially for patients who want to actively work on the respective clinical picture.
SYMPTOMS OF PERSONALITY DISORDERS
People who suffer from a personality disorder mainly have problems with their own personality and the relationships with their fellow human beings – for example, in maintaining close relationships. Most often, patients suffer from an unstable self-image or insecurities and instabilities in their goals or values. The self-image of patients with a personality disorder also varies greatly and very frequently. Forms of a personality disorder can be:
- Paranoid personality disorder
- Schizoid personality disorder
- Histrionic personality disorder
- Narcissistic personality disorder
- Emotionally unstable personality disorder (borderline type)
- Dissocial personality disorder
- Personality disorder

- Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
DIAGNOSIS OF A PERSONALITY DISORDER
Unfortunately, the many types of personality disorders do not make it easy to make a diagnosis. In order to make the right diagnosis, a high degree of sensitivity is expected from therapists and psychologists. However, a guideline with different criteria is also available to the expert staff here, which refers specifically to the diagnosis of personality disorders. This aims, for example, to ensure that any physical causes have been ruled out before the psychotherapeutic anamnesis begins.
