Patients with Personality Disorders despite being one of the biggest challenges for mental health services (up about 15% of the clinical population) rarely receive a complete and integrated treatment as provided by the literature, they are usually treated with a pharmacological approach to reduce symptoms. This paper will discuss the publication of the DSM 5 and its implication in treatment, in particular the pattern of treatment of Terzocentro of Cognitive Psychotherapy in Rome that promoted the research on meta-cognition and on severe patients will be described and analyzed.

Keywords: Personality Disorders; DSM 5; Meta-cognition; Interpersonal Meta-cognitive Psychotherapy; Integrated Treatment.
