Personality Disorders - DRHC Dubai Psychiatry Clinic

Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions characterized by enduring patterns of behavior, cognition, and inner experience that deviate markedly from the expectations of the individual's culture. These patterns typically manifest in multiple areas of functioning and cause significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

There are several types of personality disorders, each with its own unique features and characteristics. Some of the main types include:

Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD)

Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) is a mental health disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others. Individuals with ASPD may engage in behaviors that are deceitful, aggressive, or irresponsible, often without regard for the consequences to themselves or others. They may also demonstrate a lack of remorse for their actions.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD):

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental health disorder characterized by pervasive instability in mood, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. People with BPD often experience intense and unstable emotions, have difficulty forming and maintaining stable relationships, and may engage in impulsive or self-destructive behaviors.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD):

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a mental health disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others. Individuals with NPD often have an exaggerated sense of self-importance, believe they are special or unique, and require excessive admiration. They may also have a sense of entitlement and exploit others to achieve their own goals.

Avoidant Personality Disorder:

Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD) is a mental health condition characterized by feelings of inadequacy, hypersensitivity to criticism or rejection, and a reluctance to engage in social interactions. People with AvPD may avoid occupational activities that involve significant interpersonal contact, due to fears of criticism, disapproval, or rejection. They often have a strong desire for social relationships but avoid them because of their fear of being rejected or ridiculed.

Dependent Personality Disorder:

Dependent Personality Disorder (DPD) is a mental health disorder characterized by a pervasive and excessive need to be taken care of, which leads to submissive and clinging behavior and fears of separation. Individuals with DPD may have difficulty making everyday decisions without reassurance from others, and they may rely excessively on others for emotional support and guidance.

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD):

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) is a mental health disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and control. People with OCPD may be excessively focused on details, rules, and lists, to the extent that the overall point of an activity is lost. They may also be excessively devoted to work and productivity, at the expense of leisure and interpersonal relationships.
