Overview
Curriculum

Course Description:

The domain of Personality Disorders represents a distinct category within the mental health spectrum characterized by enduring patterns of behavior, cognition, and emotional expression that deviate markedly from the expectations of the individual's culture. These persistent patterns often lead to significant distress and impairment in personal, social, and occupational functioning.

In this course, participants will delve into an extensive exploration of the most prevalent personality disorders as categorized within DSM-5-TR, namely:

  • Cluster A Disorders: Paranoid, Schizoid, and Schizotypal Personality Disorders
  • Cluster B Disorders: Antisocial, Borderline, and Histrionic Personality Disorders, with a focused discussion on Psychopathy and "Dark Triad" Personality Traits.
  • Cluster C Disorders: Avoidant, Dependent, and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorders.

Key Takeaways from this informative voyage include:

  1. Unraveling the historical progression and the evolving paradigms surrounding our understanding of personality disorders.
  2. Investigating the current diagnostic criteria, emphasizing distinguishing features and diagnostic challenges inherent in personality disorder categorization.
  3. Engaging with a spectrum of therapeutic interventions, treatment modalities, and preventive strategies aimed at managing and alleviating the symptoms associated with these disorders.
  4. Reflecting on broader societal implications, perceptions, and stigma often linked with personality disorders. This course endeavors to challenge prevailing misconceptions and advocate for a holistic comprehension and empathetic approach.

Upon completion of this course, participants are anticipated to have cultivated a deep and nuanced understanding of Personality Disorders, thus enhancing both clinical sagacity and empathy in recognizing, addressing, and supporting individuals affected by these conditions. Through promoting a thorough understanding, this course serves as a stepping stone towards fostering a compassionate and informed approach in the mental health arena.
