Description

This book describes Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases
Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) is a personality disorder that is featured typically by extreme perfectionism, order, and neatness.
People with OCPD have these features:
1.Difficulty expressing their feelings.
2.Difficulty forming and maintaining close relationships with others.
3.Extremely hardworking but their obsession with perfection can make them ineffective.
4.Feeling righteous, indignant, and angry.
5.Facing social isolation.
6.Feeling anxiety that happens with depression.
OCPD is often believed to be related to an anxiety disorder called obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
They are not similar.
People with OCPD do not have any idea of anything wrong with the way they think or behave.
They consider that their way of thinking and doing things is the only right way and that everyone else is wrong.
Patients with OCPD are likely to be inflexible and rigid.
They spend extreme attention to details and rules so much so that it can influence their ability to complete a task.
They become so extremely dedicated to their work and being productive, that they forget their friends and family.
Their preoccupation gives them little time for recreational or leisurely hobbies.
While OCD and OCPD share some linked features, they are two different disorders.
It is therefore possible for a person to have both disorders.
The primary difference between these two disorders is the presence of obsessions and compulsions, as with OCD; or the absence of them, as with OCPD.
OCD should not be considered the same as obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD).
Causes
The precise cause of OCPD is not known.
OCPD may be produced by a combination of genetics and childhood experiences.
OCPD is likely to occur in families so genes may be a cause.
A person's childhood and environment may also have parts to play.
Symptoms
OCPD has some dissimilar symptoms as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
People with OCD have unwanted beliefs while people with OCPD think that their beliefs are correct.
Also, OCD often starts in childhood while OCPD normally begins in the teen years or early 20s.
People with either OCPD or OCD are both high achievers and have a sense of urgency.
They may become very distressed if other people disrupt their rigid routines
People with OCPD have feelings like anxiety or frustration.
Other signs of OCPD are:
1.Over-devotion to work
2.Not being able to throw worthless things away
3.Lack of flexibility
4.Lack of generosity
5.Not wanting to allow other people to do things
6.Not eager to show affection
7.Preoccupation with details, rules, and lists
Diagnosis
OCPD is diagnosed based on a psychological evaluation and the criteria of DSM5 or ICD10
Treatment:
Talk therapy is believed to be the most effective treatment for OCPD.
In some patients, medicines combined with talk therapy are more effective than either treatment alone.
1. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a frequent type of mental health counseling.
The regular sessions require working with the counselor to discuss any anxiety, stress, or depression.
A mental health counselor may persuade the patient to put less stress on work and more emphasis on recreation, family, and other interpersonal relationships
2. Medicines
The doctor may consider giving a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) to reduce some anxiety and stress in OCPD
3. Relaxation training
Relaxation training requires specific deep breathing and relaxation exercises that can reduce the sense of stress and urgency

Introduction

I have been writing medical articles for my blog: http://kennethkee.blogspot.com (A Simple Guide to Medical Disorder) for the benefit of my patients since 2007.

My purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of my patients.

Health Education was also my dissertation for my Ph.D (Healthcare Administration).

I then wrote an autobiolographical account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog: http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.com.

This autobiolographical account A Family Doctor’s Tale was combined with my early A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders into a new Wordpress Blog A Family Doctor’s Tale on http://kenkee481.wordpress.com.

From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 800 eBooks.

Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.

For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.

The later books go into more details of medical disorders.

The first chapter is always from my earlier blogs which unfortunately tends to have typos and spelling mistakes.

Since 2013, I have tried to improve my spelling and writing.

As I tried to bring the patient the latest information about a disorder or illness by reading the latest journals both online and offline, I find that I am learning more and improving on my own medical knowledge in diagnosis and treatment for my patients.

Just by writing all these simple guides I find that I have learned a lot from your reviews (good or bad), criticism and advice.

I am sorry for the repetitions in these simple guides as the second chapters onwards have new information as compared to my first chapter taken from my blog.

I also find repetition definitely help me and maybe some readers to remember the facts in the books more easily.

I apologize if these repetitions are irritating to some readers.

Chapter 1

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD)

What is obsessive-compulsive personality disorder?

Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) is a personality disorder that is featured typically by extreme perfectionism, order, and neatness.

People with OCPD will also have a severe need to impress their own standards on their outside environment.

People with OCPD have these features:

1. Difficulty expressing their feelings.

2. Difficulty forming and maintaining close relationships with others.

3. Extremely hardworking but their obsession with perfection can make them ineffective.

4. Feeling righteous, indignant, and angry.

5. Facing social isolation.

6. Feeling anxiety that happens with depression.

OCPD is often believed to be related to an anxiety disorder called obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

They are not similar.

People with OCPD do not have any idea of anything wrong with the way they think or behave.

They consider that their way of thinking and doing things is the only right way and that everyone else is wrong.

Personality disorders indicate a distinct category of psychiatric disorders in relating to the world.

Personality disorders indicate continuing patterns of inner experience and behavior that move away markedly from the expectations of a patient's culture.

Personality disorders are rigid, inflexible, and maladaptive and of adequate severity to cause significant impairment in functioning or internal distress.

This maladaptive pattern is obvious in the way the person thinks, feels, behaves, and most importantly, how they relate interpersonally to other people.

It is often possible to have both a personality disorder and an obsessive-compulsive or related disorder.

One personality disorder particularly happens to be most similar to the obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

It even has a similar name: obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD).

It is important to differentiate between these two disorders.

While similar in names, the link between OCD and OCPD is not as strong as one would think.

Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) is a mental disorder in which a person is preoccupied with:

1. Rules

2. Orderliness

3. Control

Patients with OCPD are likely to be inflexible and rigid.

They spend extreme attention to details and rules so much so that it can influence their ability to complete a task.

They become so extremely dedicated to their work and being productive, that they forget their friends and family.
