About the Book:-
Personality disorders are conditions in which a person struggles to deal with other people and acts in a manner that is inflexible and not well-suited to coping with the demands and changes of life. They typically begin during adolescence or early adulthood, remain stable over time and create distress or impairment in a person’s life.
This book deals with all the major types of personality disorders-paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal, antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic, avoidant, dependent and obsessive compulsive-with special focus on their causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis methods and treatment options. It also presents a detailed account of agoraphobia, anxiety disorders, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, separation anxiety and suicide basics as well as its prevention.
