Personality Disorders

There are many types of personality disorders. These involve a pattern of behavior that is largely different than the expectations of a person’s culture. These are often resistant to traditional therapies. Personality disorders have their onset in adolescence or early adulthood and may continue through the courses of one’s life. Some examples of personality disorders are Antisocial Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Treatment resistance and a negative impact throughout the life-span are key features of these disorders and early intervention is critical. Like many of the issues we treat, experiential therapy in the wilderness is particularly successful because this new context challenges the old patterns that have become habitual to the individual struggling with a personality disorder.
