What are personality disorders
They are manifestations of maladaptive, disabling and pervasive (not dependent on the context), inflexible thinking and behavior, involving the cognitive, affective, interpersonal and sometimes physiological sphere of the individual.
Generally, people are unlikely to be aware of being “affected” by a personality disorder, so early diagnosis is very important for prognosis.
Despite this, personality disorders can only be diagnosed from the age of majority, or in any case in early adulthood.
In fact, in adolescence, some similar conditions can be transient or influenced by social or hormonal changes.
Psychotherapy is essential in order to accept the diagnosis and be able to develop an ability to take control of one’s life and succeed in the various areas, work, interpersonal and intimate and example.
