Personalities - Basic Training for Care Facility Staff and Caregivers
This document contains an in-depth discussion of different personalities and how to approach personality disorders. This is an excellent training tool for care givers, and care home facility staff in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and board and care facilities.
People with PD's can be difficult to care for. (See "Dealing with Difficult Personalities") People with PD's can be manipulative, display inappropriate behavior, distort information, have major boundary issues, and have no concept of normal social behavior. People with PD's can make unacceptable and unreasonable demands on their care giver(s). Often people with PD's have inadequate coping skills and can act out impulsively when under stress. One way for a caregiver to create stress is to directly disagree with a PD's ideas.
