Create a case example depicting a disorder from each of the clusters A, B, and C. You will create three case examples in total. Keep in mind that clients with PDs do not often have good insight. For instance, a client with narcissistic PD will not come in saying, “I have a high need for admiration from others” or “I lack empathy.” Rather, the diagnostician has to infer these traits from the client’s interpersonal style and history.
Each case example should describe behaviors that lead the diagnostician to conclude a PD might be present. Please review Clusters A, B and C – Case Examples of Personality Disorders Scoring Guide prior to submission so that you address all required grading criteria.

What is personality? One definition would be that it is a relatively stable set of traits that characterize an individual’s behavior. These traits are behaviors that we reliably display, and that others have come to recognize in us. We may occasionally surprise the people we know well by doing something out of character. But generally, we behave in somewhat predictable patterns. Of course, we all have traits that are maladaptive. We may worry too much about things we cannot control, act possessively toward a loved one, be chronically late, et cetera. Hopefully, however, we have enough insight into these traits that we are able to manage our behavior, as well as compensatory positive traits that make up for our less-than-exemplary conduct. Ideally, a person’s typical response patterns will be flexible enough that she or he can respond adequately to unique situations.
