Mental Illness: Criteria and Treatment
DSM IV: Axis II
Mental Retardation and Personality Disorders

__________________________________________________.

Axis II: Mental Retardation and Personality Disorders are recorded so the clinician will give consideration to additional intervention and treatment choices. In Mental Retardation problems in brain development have usually occurred and virtually will affect all aspects of the individual's cognitive functioning. Borderline Intellectual Functioning may also be a consideration for clinical focus. Personality is the qualities and traits of being a specific and unique individual. It is the enduring pattern of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors - it is how we think, love, feel, make decisions and take actions. Personality is determined, in part, by our genetics and also, by our environment. It is the determining factor in how we live our lives. Individuals with Personality Disorders have more difficulty in every aspect of their lives. Their individual personality traits reflect ingrained, inflexible, and maladaptive patterns of behaviors that cause discomfort, distress and impair the individual's ability to function in the daily activities of living.
