Social Disorders


n.noun
/so·cial/ /dis·or·ders/

Often confused with social anxiety. Social disorders are conditions of society which cause other disorderly and immoral things to occur. These include things like negative peer pressure, traumatic experiences, social prejudices, and propaganda. Social disorders function for a society much like a disease does to the body deteriorating it from within.

Common social disorders that plague troubled teens may include, paranoid personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, avoidant personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder.

More often than not, troubled teens suffer from one or more social disorders. Antisocial behavior such as, rage, shyness, sexual acting out and suicidal tendencies can all be attributed to one or more forms of social disorder.

Fortunately for troubled adolescents struggling with social disorders, there is a myriad of treatment options to help treat their afflictions. Parents often choose treatment options such as, therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers or group homes for troubled teens.
