Research-based interventions on personality disorders

 

Select one of the personality disorders from the text. (Note that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is not the same as Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, if you decide to choose this as your topic)

Use the Research Analysis to complete this assignment.

Prepare a 1,200- to 1,700-word paper that discusses research-based interventions to treat the selected disorder.

Review the characteristics of the selected disorder and discuss the research about intervention strategies for the disorder by completing the following:

  • Present the criteria used to diagnose the disorder using the DSM-5.
  • Compare and contrast the chosen disorder with at least one other personality disorder from the same Cluster (A, B, or C).
  • Evaluate and present three peer-reviewed research studies using the Research Analysis. Not all elements of the Research Analysis will be relevant for each study. Discussing statistical methods is not as important as discussing purpose, subjects studied and the findings. Don’t use studies focusing on a single subject (case studies).
  • Discuss the treatments or interventions that have been shown to be the most effective for your selected disorder.

Cite at least five peer-reviewed sources.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines
