Case study of a patient diagnosed with anxiety-based, obsessive-compulsive disorder.
This paper uses a case study of a patient diagnosed with anxiety-based, obsessive-compulsive disorder to discuss its symptoms, characteristics, diagnosis, and treatment.
“Having a personality disorder means that the affected individual is not the kind of person who can adapt smoothly to the normal routines of everyday life. Instead, the person expects the world and those in his orbit to change rather than being able to adjust to the requirements of different situations and relationships. In essence, the affected person behaves in a rigid and inflexible way that perpetuates vicious cycles and fulfills his/her worst prophecies.”
