* There are many types of disorders, but they all involve debilitation that makes routine life situations difficult.
* Schizophrenia is not dissociative identity disorder. It is a disorder that involves a break with reality and auditory hallucinations.
* Personality disorders are the most difficult disorders to diagnose and treat. The most common treatment is medication (most have side effects).
* Medication is effective as a treatment, but it is often combined with a form of “talk therapy” to provide a more complete therapeutic technique.
* Behavioral and cognitive therapists are very popular forms of “talk therapy.”
* Freudian therapy, though well known, is not utilized much anymore.
