Avoidant personality disorder also abbreviated as AVPD is a type of personality disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fifth Edition) (DSM-V). This disorder is characterized by patterns of social withdrawal, inadequacy, and fear of criticism. We made this video to shed some light on the surface of this personality disorder.
Also, we’ve previously made a video on the signs someone has an Avoidant Attachment Style if you want to check that out: https://youtu.be/nqlce10FyVU
