Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder

Dr. Mike Emlet responds to a question about ministering to someone with obsessive compulsive personality disorder.

– The term ‘Personality Disorder’ is a secular term refers to a long-standing pattern of a person’s experience of themselves or how they relate to others.
– Like any psychiatric diagnosis, it’s a description rather than an explanation of the problem, or even a particular plan of how to go about helping the person.
– Don’t be of scared off by a big sounding diagnosis. See it for what it is – a very good description of how this person thinks of themselves, how they experience life emotionally, how they relate to other people. Let this be a starting rather than an ending point.
