Kati Morton talks about OCPD (obsessive compulsive personality disorder): what it is, how we diagnose it, and what our treatment options are.
OCPD is when we have a pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and control. These desires or pattern of behavior will come at the expense of flexibility, openness and efficiency. It usually begins in early adulthood and must be present in a variety of contexts.
We must have 4 out of the following 8 symptoms:
1. Preoccupied with lists, details, rules, order, organization or schedules to the extent that the major point of the activity is lost.
2. Shows perfectionism that interferes with task completion.
3. Is excessively devoted to work and productivity to the exclusion of leisure activities.
4. Is overconscientious, scrupulous, and inflexible about matters of morality. This cannot be accounted for by cultural or religious identification.
5. Is unable to discard worn-out or worthless objects even when they have no sentimental value.
6.Reluctant to delegate tasks or to work with others unless they submit to exactly his or her way of doing things.
7. Adopts a miserly spending style.
8. Shows rigidity and stubbornness.
*all of the criteria here is from the DSM 5.
