Course Description: 

The primary aim of this course is to review research documenting the associations between personality disorders and health conditions, specifically sleep disturbance, obesity, pain conditions, and other chronic health conditions.  In addition, the authors evaluated research on candidate mechanisms underlying health problems in personality disorders and potential treatments for such disorders.  Results underscore numerous deleterious health outcomes associated with personality disorder features and personality disorder diagnoses and suggest potential biological and behavioral factors that may account for these relations.  Guidelines for future research in this area are discussed at the close of the course. 

This course is based upon material published in the peer-reviewed journal Canadian Psychology and is available as an open-access article. 

This course on personality disorders and health outcomes is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, nurses, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of health outcomes associated with personality disorders.  The course material includes a literature review of interventions.  It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal. 

The course is based on a journal article which includes research.  It contains statistical analysis and data that some clinicians enjoy reading and others do not.  A major benefit of reading research-based articles for continuing education is they provide practitioners with the latest findings in their field.  

Authors:  Katherine L. Dixon-Gordon, Diana J. Whalen, Brianne K. Layden, and Alexander L. Chapman
