We can help your boy as he deals with Avoidant Personality Disorder, exhibiting a long-standing sense of inadequacy and great sensitivity to what others think about him. This might lead to his being inhibited and shy, wary to stay away from activities in which he’d find himself interacting with others, especially afraid of being subject to scorn.
Does he consider himself socially inept; certain peers find him uninteresting and unappealing, suffering from seriously low self-confidence and heightened sense of self-consciousness? If so, your son may be suffering from Avoidant Personality Disorder.
It’s critical to find just the right diagnosis and method of treatment that will allow him to succeed if he is not making headway in a traditional school setting. Our especially small student base might be just the thing to ensure his growth here.
While commonly diagnosed, there is not unanimous agreement on effective treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are used, and training in social skills might be, too.
We understand that the last thing you’d want is for Avoidant Personality Disorder to rule your son’s life, and our key to success will be to efficiently challenge his (negative) beliefs about himself!
