What is nasspd?

The North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD) is an organization devoted to research concerning personality disorders.

During the past decade, the view of personality disorders has changed dramatically. Rather than being seen as chronic conditions, it has been found that they have a particularly good symptomatic outcome. We are committed to further research on these disorders. We are also committed to informing clinicians, patients, and their family members about the latest information concerning this set of disorders. Finally, we are committed to aggressively advocating for the funding that these common but disabling disorders deserve. As we move forward, we look to established leaders in the field for guidance. We also hope to cultivate a new generation of researchers who will advance the field and by doing so, will lessen the suffering of these patients.
