Abnormal Psychology, Part III

  • One category of disorders is Somatoform Disorders—specific examples include Hypochondria, Somatization disorder, pain disorder, and conversion disorder
  • Dissociative Disorders are more controversial disorders that include dissociative amnesia, dissociative fugue (state), and dissociative identity disorder (formerly called multiple personality disorder)
  • Personality Disorders are another category, but those who have these often do not realize they have a disorder—they are often viewed as eccentric or odd or intense—and therefore have little desire to change
  • Examples of personality disorders include Antisocial PD, Histrionic PD, Borderline PD, Paranoid PD, Schizotypal PD, and Narcissistic PD
