Abstract

Kernberg, Weiner, and Bardenstein (2000), Bleiberg (2001), Freeman and Rigby (2003), and Freeman and Duff (2006) have raised the question: Are children who manifest certain traits displaying what may be precursors to later personality disorders, or can they be diagnosed as having a personality disorder during childhood or adolescence? Clinicians have responded to this question in various ways, ranging from the affirmative to the negative and with a host of ethical, legal, and conceptual issues evoked for support. Topics discussed in this chapter include arguments against diagnosing personality disorders in children and adolescents; diagnosing personality disorders: a cultural perspective; cultural influences; and assessment.
