Question description

Therapy for Clients With Personality Disorders

Clients with personality disorders often find it difficult to overcome their problems and function in daily life. Even when these clients are aware that they have a dysfunction with their personality and are open to counseling, treatment can be challenging for both the client and the therapist. For this Discussion, as you examine personality disorders, consider therapeutic approaches you might use with clients.

  • Analyze therapeutic approaches to treating clients with personality disorders

To prepare:

ACTUAL ASSIGNMENT

  • Write a description of the personality disorder you selected.
