Abstract:Context: A personality disorder causes limitations in multiple areas of life. There are different treatments available for people who suffer from a personality disorder and who want to get a grip on their lives, for example a clinical treatment. Dysfunctional and inflexible coping seems to play a significant role in the life of people with personality disorders and is a starting point for treatment. An important part of the clinical treatments focuses on the improvement of coping abilities. Nevertheless, there are just a few studies performed in this direction. This study attempted to answer the question whether there will be an improvement in coping abilities during clinical treatment with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy or Schedule in patients with a personality disorder. Method: Between 2010 and 2012 people with a personality disorder who followed a clinical treatment filled out the Utrechtse Coping Lijst every three months. The clinical treatment consisted of treatment with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy or Schema Therapy. Results: During the clinical treatment the coping abilities problem solving, seeking social support, comforting thoughts en palliative reaction improved. Avoidance and passive response patterns decreased during clinical treatment. The results of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Scheme Therapy correspond with each other for a big part. The most important results that the separate treatments both show are an increase in problem solving and seeking social support. Passive response patterns seem to decrease. Conclusion: and discussion During clinical treatment, patients with a personality disorder were using more active and less passive coping styles. De largest effects were found in problem solving, seeking social support, palliative reaction and passive response.
