Individuals with personality disorders may have significant problems with emotion regulation and interpersonal relationships. For the individual with a personality disorder, it can feel like the same patterns keep playing out in their lives, and they may receive similar feedback about their behaviour from those closest to them.

There are several different factors which may contribute to the development of a personality disorder, including personality traits inherited down through genetics, and other events or traumas in the individual’s developmental environment.

Personality disorders can cause significant disruption to the lives of not only the affected individual, but those around that person, with personal and professional relationships, and productivity is impacted. As a result, individuals with personality disorders who go unsupported can often find themselves socially isolated.

The team of Brisbane psychologists at Bowen Hills Psychology are highly experienced in diagnosing personality disorders and in providing strategies and tools to help individuals manage and shift problematic interpersonal patterns.
