50 Word Paraphrased Abstract
Personal issues and dysfunction are the features of personality disorders (PD’s). This is a study of 628 psychiatric patients who have completed specific personality testing, clinical interviews, questionnaires, and computerized adaptive testing. Students were studied for having specific concerning habits like looking outside of one’s self for gratification and acknowledgement.
This article dives into the perception of people with PD symptoms specifically how they are perceived by their closest friends or family members as well as how those people perceive them to be. About 641 people were studied and examined to see if the PD subjects were being perceived as accurately as they thought by the close family or friend.
This article covers the study findings of the severity of PD and how it relates to violence. The urgency factor is being exposed and discovered in urgency factors (emotional impulsiveness) as well as personality and individual differences. This study tests 100 men, all forensic psychiatric patients. All of them were confirmed to have PD and an actual documented history of violence.
This article is about research that was to allow the health professionals to assess severe borderline personality disorders in the mental health care community. There were problems in five categories like patient-related, professional-related, interaction-related, social system-related, and mental health care related. Patient problems consisted of things like social issues, dependency and attachment.
