Order, Borders, and Disorders: Toward a Neuropsychodynamic Understanding of Personality Disorders

Discussant: Anne R. Gearity, Ph.D.

 Clinical Case Presentations by

 Andrea H. Alpert, Ph.D.

 Irma P Khelghati, Psy.D.

Traditionally, presenting symptoms, such as used in DSM categories, have been used to classify personality disorders. The psychoanalytic perspective has provided an understanding of the unconscious psychodynamics that underlies these symptoms. In this conference, the presenters will enlarge on both these approaches by exploring the neuropsychological processes that underly these disorders. Two case presentations and clinical discussions will be used to illustrate how these different approaches may be integrated and ordered to deepen psychotherapists’ understanding of these disorders.
