Case Study 1, Josephine
Diagnosis: Schizoid Personality Disorder 301.20 (premorbid)
Josephine is a 47-year-oild woman with Schizoid Personality Disorder. This diagnosis
results from the minimum four matching criteria according to the DSM-IV which include: almost
always choosing solitary activities, emotional detachment and coldness, lack of close friends
outside of first-degree familial relationships, and the lack of pleasure in activities (American
Psychiatric Association, 2000).
Possible causes of Josephine’s disorder could include biological factors such as increased
dopamine levels or brain structure abnormalities. There may be a history of personality disorders,
specifically Schizophrenia or Schizoid Personality, in first degree relatives which increased
Josephine’s likelihood for developing the disorder. If this predisposition did exist conflict related
stress may have triggered the onset of the disorder. Treatment for Josephine should include
possible antipsychotic medications in combination with cognitive therapy to increase coping and
social skills (Comer, 2008).
Case Study 2, Luis
Diagnosis: Narcissistic Personality Disorder 301.81
