Mental Health: Personality Disorder
Presenting the third part of GREAT MINDS’ special series on mental health, "For Those Needing Help"! In an ever-accelerating world, we lead increasingly frenzied and intense lives just to stay afloat. But there are moments when something just feels off. "I am uncomfortable meeting people." "I get these rapid mood swings, and it sometimes give people the wrong impression." "I feel an uncontrollable rage over the smallest things." Are these mere shifts in our personalities? If these feelings persist and cause significant problems, they might indicate a personality disorder, not just a character trait.
Join world-renowned psychoanalyst, Professor Peter Fonagy, who has published over 500 papers integrating empirical research with psychoanalysis theories, as he guides us through the A to Z of personality disorders! In this lecture series, he will delve into the causes and solutions for various personality disorders (borderline, antisocial, narcissistic, and avoidant personality disorders) that might seem similar but are in fact distinctly different.
