Avoidant Personality is Not a Disorder !

Avpd stands for Avoidant Personality Disorder. We prefer to refer to it as Avoidant Personality, and leave off the Disorder part. The reason you will find some instances of the word "Disorder" is because many refer to it this way. The Disorder part is needed in order to comply with SEO (Search Engine Optimization), so that we can be found.

A Disorder is something that is defective, is permanent, and cannot be fixed.


People that have Avp are not Defective and do not have a Disorder. They simply have a condition where their brains are not functioning correctly, 

Avoidant Personality its not a disorder!

It is the same as having Cancer, Diabetes or any other medical condition that can be corrected!
