Personal therapy that effectively obtains a long-term level of trust helps in certain cases of schizoid personality disorder by giving patients a channel to change their false perceptions of friendships into true relationships.
Personal psychotherapy can form a true relationship between the patient and therapist.
Social skills training is an essential component of treatment.

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.

Schizoid Personality Disorder

What is Schizoid Personality Disorder?

People with schizoid personality disorder seldom feel there is anything wrong with them.

Schizoid personality disorder is one of a cluster of disorders called Cluster 'A' or eccentric personality disorders.

People with these disorders often seem odd or peculiar.

Symptoms are:

1. An indifference to social relationships and

2. A limited range of emotional expression.

People with schizoid personality disorder also are likely to be distant, detached, and indifferent to social relationships.

They normally are loners who favor solitary activities and seldom express strong emotions.

The word personality depicts deeply ingrained behavior patterns and the way people perceive, relate to, and think about themselves and the world.

Personality characteristics are lasting patterns of perceiving, relating to, and thinking about the environment and oneself that are shown in a wide range of social and personal contexts.

A personality disorder has the features of:

1. A lasting pattern of inner experience and behavior that changes noticeably from the expectations of the person's culture, inflexibility and pervasiveness,

2. A start in adolescence or early adulthood stability over time and causing significant impairment in functioning or internal distress.

Schizoid personality disorder is a model of indifference to social relationships, with a restricted range of emotional expression and experience.

The disorder presents itself by early adulthood through social and emotional detachments that stop people from having close relationships.

People with it are able to function in daily life but will not form good relationships with others.

They are normally loners and may be susceptible to excessive daydreaming and forming attachments to animals.
