Meet Our Team Of Personality Disorder Psychiatrists

Overview

Personality disorders can be difficult to treat as a result of the abnormal thought and behaviour patterns that make normal functioning and thinking in the world different for them. Most people with personality disorders may also engage in denial and refuse to accept the presence of their disorder. Therapeutic intervention is a must for the treatment of these disorders which may not go away otherwise.
Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy, encourages a person to talk about their condition, thoughts, behaviours, feelings, and mood. A psychotherapist often employs techniques that help improve an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. There are various different types of psychotherapies including –
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This therapy helps the individual identify and change faulty and inaccurate perceptions regarding themselves, others, and the world around them.
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). This therapy helps the individual learn distress tolerance, interpersonal skills, emotional regulation and acceptance of situations.
Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). This therapy helps the individual in dealing with relationship concerns and improving them.
