A personality development disorder is an inflexible and pervasive pattern of inner experience and behaviour, which markedly deviates from the expectations of the individual's culture. Some children and adolescents have a hard time developing their personalities in that ordinary way. That children and adolescents are at higher risk to develop an antisocial personality disorder if they showed signs of conduct disorder and attention deficit disorder before the age of 10. The therapy which these children and adolescents need might be more intense and maybe even different from looking at the disorders traditionally.
An early diagnosis might help to get the right treatment at an early stage and thus might help to prevent a personality disorder outcome in adulthood.
Work lies at the heart of every community, from the smallest tribe to the biggest civilization. Work supports society, gives structure and purpose to life, keeps the body and brain occupied and promotes a sense of satisfaction. When work is rewarding and enjoyable, it can provide a lifetime's worth of wealth and fulfilment. However, when it causes unhappiness and stress, it can make life utterly miserable. Increasing numbers of people report feeling undervalued, overworked, underpaid and unfulfilled in the workplace - feelings that can lead to further complications with mental health. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and even suicidal thoughts can all be triggered by work related stress, along with physical health problems, relationship issues, sleep loss and feelings of self-doubt and inferiority.
A mental health professional can often help treat any difficulties experienced as a result of coping with high levels of stress.

A romantic relationship is one of the closest we have as humans. Choosing a partner and staying together through life's twists and turns is rarely simple. When we choose to get married and raise a family together, unsurprisingly this only adds to the complexity. Whether you have the odd tiff, full-blown arguments or you have simply stopped having fun - very few relationships exist conflict-free. When this (one of our most important relationships) begins to falter, our health and happiness often suffers. While for many of us our first instinct is to try and work through problems alone, it can be incredibly useful to seek outside help.

Depression is a common mental health condition that has a variety of physical and mental symptoms. Although we all feel down and fed up every now and again, depression is more than just that. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. Depression can happen at any age, but often begins in adulthood. Depression, especially in midlife or older adults, can co-occur with other serious medical illnesses, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Parkinson’s disease. These conditions are often worse when depression is present. But no matter how hopeless you feel, you can get better. Understanding the signs, symptoms, causes, and treatment of depression is the first step to overcoming the problem.
Living with this condition can be difficult, not only for sufferers, but also for those around them. Despite this, many sufferers will wait a long time before seeking help. This is especially true if they fear it will see them rejected, ridiculed or deprived of a sense of control. Others may simply be afraid to confront their problems. Gaining new skills, or being able to challenge depressive thinking and behavior at the onset, means you can be confident about leading a depression-free life. Good depression counseling will help you learn these skills.

Forensic Psychotherapy is the application of psychological knowledge to the treatment of patients who have mental illnesses who commit violent acts against others or themselves involving both the conscious and unconscious motivations. The aim of forensic psychotherapy is to not only understand the crime the person has committed, but to understand the person as a whole within his/her environment. Working from the premise that the offender has a complex internal world which may be characterized by punitive and unreliable internal representations of paternal and other figures, psychotherapy can shed light on the unconscious impulses, conflicts, and primitive defense mechanisms, involved in his or her destructive actions and "acting out". It helps to understand the triggers to the violent acts and timing of the acts. Forensic psychotherapy aims to help the offender understand why they committed the act and take responsibility for it, aiming to prevent future crimes committed.The intimacy and profound experience of therapy may enable an offender to reframe and restructure these harsh images which tend to blunt sensitivities and, when projected out onto others, act as a rationale or driving force for criminal acting out. The patient may develop self-awareness, and an awareness of the nature of their deeds, and ultimately be able to live a more adjusted life.
AmFine Forensic psychologists not only provide support for offenders but also provide counseling services to police p

Pregnancy can put strain on a partnership, especially when a pregnancy was unplanned and partners have different goals.
