Dr. Ramani is the go-to expert for personality disorders. So this week, we focused on answering questions related to borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, and more.
Dr. Ramani kicks off the Session by sharing how you can find effective therapy if you’re suffering from a relationship with a narcissist. She shares specific tips for a sufferer who lives in a different country where cultural norms may get in the way.
She also answers how common it is for men to get diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), the key ways to spot the differences between bipolar disorder and BPD, and what family members of someone with BPD can do to instill and maintain a little more hope in their lives.
Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) is another misunderstood personality disorder. Dr. Ramani explains whether psychopathy and sociopathy (which fall under ASPD) are actual diagnoses in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Dr. Ramani continues with key advice on how the behavioral patterns of dependent personality disorder and avoidant personality disorder are different, at what age personality disorders can be diagnosed, why there are often co-occurring disorders that go along with personality disorders, and how to cope with a friend who’s showing traits of obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD). After listening to this session, you’ll walk away with actionable advice on the most common personality disorders in today’s society.
