Personality disorders

Personality disorders are chronic and persistent behavioral and emotional disturbances that are often difficult to treat. Some professionals argue that these disorders are not mental disorders at all, but personality styles—that these individuals are just odd or unusual. Review your text book and a minimum of two peer reviewed references and develop an argument for or against the inclusion of personality disorders as a diagnostic category in the next version of the DSM. Be sure to support your position with relevant research on the causation, diagnosis, and treatment of personality disorders.

Develop your position into a 2-3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources and include a cover page and reference page.

 

By Wednesday, July 2, 2014, deliver your assignment.
