Overview

Family therapy can be especially useful for the family of the personality disorder patients such as borderline personality disorder (BPD). Family therapy can promote less conflict, better communication, reduction in feelings of guilt and burden in families with BPD individuals. Family therapy for any personality disorder can result in the empowering of family members by helping them make sense of their loved one’s disorder, understand the ways they can respond to the individual, and learn how to not let their symptoms affect their own emotional and psychological well-being. Family therapy would not be suited for an individual with Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD) as being in a group setting can provoke such an individual’s attention-seeking and other provocative behaviours. However, family therapy without the individual with HPD could be beneficial in helping the other members understand more about the disorder and helping them learn deal with its symptoms on a day-to-day basis.
