TORRES-SOTO, Juan F; IBORRA-GINER, Pedro; GINER-ALEGRIA, César A  and  MOYA-FAZ, Francisco J. Results of a day-hospital program for personality disorders. Application of the PID-5 and DSM-5 dimensional model. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.2, pp.41-47.  Epub June 14, 2021. ISSN 2174-0550.

DSM-5 dimensional-hybrid model and PID-5 Personality Inventory might be particularly useful in a day hospital treatment program for personality disorders, while the need for treatment for mixed personality disorder and unspecified personality disorder is such as frequent as for borderline personality disorder. Effective treatment programs in the public health system are required. The study shows the results from the day hospital treatment program for personality disorders implemented at San Juan Hospital in Alicante. The treatment involves an intensive and interdisciplinary program that applies the DSM-5 dimensional model and the PID-5 personality inventory to identify therapeutic needs, with both individual and group therapies with a cognitive-behavioural therapeutic approach. Results support the relevance of therapeutic components regarding this program. Moreover, its effectiveness has been demonstrated in achieving significant changes in symptoms, traits, comorbidity, and psychosocial functioning. It also appears to be efficient not only in reducing the number of visits to the emergency and hospital admissions, but also in ensuring continuity and therapeutic compliance, thus reducing public health costs.
