CBT is effective for personality disorder as it helps the individual identify, challenge, and replace the faulty assumptions that they have gathered about the world thus reducing their unnecessary emotional distress and destructive behaviours.
CBT is beneficial for people with personality disorder as it helps the individual identify and change their distorted thinking patterns, teaches emotional regulation skills, helps manage emotional triggers, helps understand the association between one’s thinking and their feelings thus increasing one’s sense of control over their environment, build better awareness of self, and enhance overall quality of life.
The number of sessions differs for each person. However, long-term CBT therapy is recommended for people with personality disorders as it can be a gradual process in helping them gain insight and change their dysfunctional and distorted thinking patterns.
