3 paragraphs for essay paper in abnormal psychology | PSY410 Abnormal Psychology | University of Phoenix
This is what is already written for team paper. I have to add 3 paragraphs on A DEBATE THAT SUPPORTS TREATMENT FOR PERSONALITY DISORDERS.
THIS IS WHAT NEEDS TO BE ADDED TO:
Personality is vital to defining who we are as individuals. It involves a combination of characteristics and qualities: including attitudes, thoughts, behaviors, and moods—and how we express these traits in our contacts with other people and the world around us. We know a lot about personality traits people hold, but somehow personality disorders are one of the least understood and recognized mental disorders. A personality disorder is a way of thinking, feeling and behaving that deviates from the expectations of the culture, causes distress or problems functioning, and lasts over time. It is believed that both genetics and environment play a role in the development of personality disorders. A treatment that can be used for personality disorders is psychotherapy. There are many types of approaches to psychotherapy but it is mainly for treating mental health problems by talking with a psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health provider. Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy have long been used in the treatment of patients with personality disorders. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing.
