Theoretical Explanations for the Development of Personality Disorders, Before beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 10 in the Lecci (2015) book, and pay close attention to the case illustrations at the end of the chapter. Also, read “Difficult” Patient? Or is it a Personality Disorder? (Links to an external site.), Pathological Personality Traits can Capture DSM–IV Personality Disorder Types
For this discussion, select one of the personality disorders discussed in Chapter 10 of the Lecci text that you find interesting. Then choose two of the theories covered in this course to explain how that personality disorder might develop. The primary focus here should be on the theoretical explanation of how your chosen disorder may have developed and should not be a detailed description of the disorder.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
