Psychoanalysis of Avoidant Personality Disorder: A Systematic Case Study of Process and Outcome

John Porcerelli, Barry Dauphin, J. Stuart Ablon, Susan Leitman and Michael Bambery

There are no systematic case studies or effectiveness studies of psychoanalysis for Avoidant Personality Disorder (AVPD) and only three effectiveness studies of short-term psychodynamic therapy for Cluster C PDs (Barber et al. 1997; Svartberg et al. 2004; Winston et al. 1994). AVPD, one of the most prevalent personality disorders, is associated with disability and impedes recovery from Axis-I disorders. Short-term therapy has shown to be effective in treating patients with AVPD/Cluster C PDs (with comorbid Axis I disorders). However, a small percentage of patients in these studies did not improve in short-term therapy.
