Dependent Personality Disorder


This disorder is also known as asthenic. Personality disorder. It means the person has a subjective sense of being unreal, strange or unfamiliar to one self. The person has a dependence on other people. Recent studies have shown that there are a number of cases present now-a-days. In this case the person is dependent on other people in almost every walk of their life. They are not able to take decisions of their own, take care of themselves and to make their own identity.

How to tackle the problem

When a patient with such a disorder comes in front of you then some of the questions that are to be asked are, whether he can make his decisions of his own, whether he argue with his closed one. Whether he can do shopping for himself alone? Whether he can go into any other relationship after breaking a closed relationship, whether he is afraid to live alone, whether he can manage when his closed ones leave him? These are some of the questions from which one can come to know about the disorder. Psychotherapy is another best treatment for this disorder. It has been successful in patients who used to take medicines for chronic insomnia and nervousness. These patients after the therapy have started to confront their anger and react according to their respective surroundings. The same treatment was applied on college students, and there was a mixed response. In some of the cases there were very good results but on the other hand there was no result. But everyone reported that they have started to express their feelings and have also started their own decisions for themselves.

Aims of the treatment

The main aim of the treatment is to avoid further deterioration of the state of the patient to relieve the intense anxiety levels, to re-establish the lost skills of the patient and to make the patient adaptable to the situation around him. The long range goal of the treatment is to make the patient independent and making him willing enough to adapt to any situation around him. For example, to make decision of his own, to become intimate with others, to become a good co-worker, to become compassionate and caring to others, to be open to the criticisms received and to change accordingly. All these are the aims of treatment of this disorder. If the affected person is not treated in time then it can lead to chronic complaints like, nervousness and insomnia and the patient’s health will deteriorate very quickly.
