The Coraline Effect: The Misdiagnosis of Personality Disorders in College Students Who Grew up with a Personality Disordered Parent
Donatone, Brooke
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v30 n3 p187-196 2016
College students may be misdiagnosed as personality disordered when in fact their problems are better explained by their upbringing. Growing up with a personality disordered parent may cause them to initially present with what appear to be personality disordered traits due to issues such as not learning adequate coping skills. Accurate diagnosis is important because it affects current treatment and referrals for longer-term treatment.
