    00:02 In summary, personality disorders are usually diagnosed in late adolescence or early adulthood.

    00:07 And they can be co-occurring with other psychiatric or medical disorders.

    00:18 It's important to remember that there are three clusters of personality disorders: A, B and C.

    00:27 The A cluster usually has characteristics of odd and eccentric behaviors and thoughts.

    00:35 For example, paranoid personality disorder.

    00:40 The B is dramatic and emotional.

    00:43 An example of a B cluster of personality disorder would be borderline personality disorder.

    00:51 And C, the characteristics are anxiety and fearfulness.

    00:56 And an example of a cluster C personality disorder is obsessive compulsive personality disorder.

    01:05 We must always remain vigilant that as nurses, our focus is on our client not on a diagnosis and being able to see them in this present moment and see what they need with constant assessment and evaluation that we're helping them to move towards their recovery.
