I need some assistance with these assignment. paranoid personality disorder and its treatment Thank you in advance for the help! Mrs Desai came for treatment about six months ago on court recommendation for anger management. She has been experiencing sudden fits of rage and manic episodes over one year, since her divorce. She had been short-listed for a recent promotion and this had given rise, by her account and in her words, “to dirty politics and a cutthroat rat race”.
Her initial account of the episode in question was very incoherent and involved. It included sudden outbursts of rage and numerous digressions. Her inability to maintain focus seemed to stem from a subconscious effort to justify herself against, what she believed to the nefarious plots of her colleagues to push her out of the running for the aforementioned promotion.
Mrs Desai began showing traits of paranoia and persecution mania from early on during the session. It began with the account of her experience in the office. She stressed the unfairness of her boss, of the work culture. She believed herself to be unjustly victimized by undue pressure, low recompense and the political “motives” of her colleagues. Her deliverance was often interrupted by her frequent denigration of her husband and even her child’ and She went as far as to call him a ‘hindrance” and accused him of being “one of them”. Her criminalization of what seemed to be past disputes with her husband and her belief in the complicity of her 10-year-old child in her divorce was the manifest proof of paranoia and delusional persecution mania. Mrs Desai specifically emphasized on the fact that her husband wanted to take their son away and that he was out “to get her”.
At an interesting point in the session, Mrs Desai, on record, that since her divorce every time she entered the office cafeteria she could hear people lower their voices, point at her and whisper among each other. This particular instance is noteworthy because this parallels a case, of a woman named Donna who presented similar symptoms and almost an identical account, as recorded by Duane L. Dobbert in his introduction to personality disorders in his book Understanding Personality Disorders. (2007) .
