About Avoidant Personality Disorder in TeensAvoidant Personality Disorder is exhibiting long-standing feelings of inadequacy and undue sensitivity to what others think about themselves. These thoughts might lead to your teen to be self-conscious and shy, careful to avoid activities in which they have to interact with others, especially fearful of being the subject of disparagement. Does your teen think that they are socially inept, certain their peers won’t find them interesting or likable, endure acutely low self-worth and heightened sense of self-consciousness? If so, your son or daughter might be dealing with Avoidant Personality Disorder.
Treatment For Avoidant Personality Disorder at Our School for Troubled TeensIt’s most important to find just the right diagnosis and method of treatments that will allow your teen to flourish, if not making headway in a traditional school setting. Our highly individualized boarding school program might be just the thing to ensure their growth here. While a rather frequently diagnosed disorder, there is not universally agreed-upon effective treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are often used, and social skill instruction might be, too. We know that the last thing you would want is to see Avoidant Personality Disorder rule your child’s life, and our key to success will be to effectively confront their (negative) beliefs about themselves!
