Although the symptoms of personality disorders may differ widely in shape and scope, they are almost always treated with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This is because all ten personality disorders are characterized by rigid thought and behavior patterns, and most people with these disorders suffer from similar types of ongoing conflict and instability in many aspects of their lives. Packed with exercises and worksheets, The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Workbook for Personality Disorders presents a series of eight social skills and coping skills readers can learn and practice to overcome their personality disorder. First, readers learn to get reactivated in life and correct the self-defeating thoughts that hold them back. Then they learn a series of relaxation, visualization, and imagery techniques to confront their fears. Finally, readers practice real-life exposure to those fears and develop additional communication, emotion regulation, and coping skills to keep their personality-disorder-related behaviors in check. This workbook is the ideal resource for readers who suffer from any of the ten personality disorders: paranoid personality disorder; schizoid personality disorder; schizotypal personality disorder; histrionic personality disorder; narcissistic personality disorder; antisocial personality disorder; borderline personality disorder; avoidant personality disorder; dependent personality disorder; and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
