dc.description.abstractSocial problem solving is 'the self-directed cognitive-affective-behavioral process by which an individual attempts to identify or discover solutions to specific problems encountered in everyday living'. A problem arises in a life situation where a response is required but none is available, and a solution is a situation-specific coping response that is the product of the problem solving process. There are many kinds of problem in everyday living, but of most relevance to the subject of this chapter are interpersonal problems, since personality disorders are defined to a large degree by difficulties in interpersonal functioning. Violence is not respectful of the interests and well-being of other parties, and nor is it respectful of the law. In this chapter, the cognitive-behavioral-affective problem-solving process that is initiated when a problem arises will be examined. Aspects of this process that elevate the risk of violence will be identified. In practical terms, social problem-solving theory and research are useful in developing interventions, with social problem-solving therapy proving effective in ameliorating a range of problems. In this chapter, however, the focus will be on the treatment of violence and people with personality disorders. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
