CARE FOR THE CAREGIVER
Family / caregivers of people with Personality Disorder have mental health problems, such as symptoms of anxiety, depression and diffuse somatic problems that in many cases have a psychosomatic origin.
Sometimes these problems are mediated by dysfunctional thoughts when controlling the characteristics of the caregiver and the situation of the caregiver. These beliefs can affect coping styles, establishing guidelines that prevent the search for solutions and increasing health risk.
