Overview

For patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD), group therapy has been found to be an effective mode of intervention. Group CBT interventions can empower BPD patients with emotional regulation and behaviour management skills, while Mentalization-Based Therapy has been found effective in other aspects associated with BPD such as dealing with suicide attempts, self harm, medication compliance, and health services use. Secondary outcomes of improvement in symptoms of depression, anxiety, and mental health have also been found as a result of group therapy interventions which promotes its usefulness in dealing with other such co-morbid conditions that patients with personality disorder may have.
Group therapy can help patients with schizoid personality disorder improve their interpersonal skills. For patients with Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD), group therapy can be beneficial in helping challenge their need for the sense of control and orderliness, and for patients with Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD), it can help in challenging their negative assumptions about people and the world around them.
Group therapy may not be suited for someone with histrionic personality disorder as being in a group setting may provoke their need to engage in attention seeking and provocative behaviour; moreover individual therapy for them would be more suited.
