"Fix" PD?: Professionals don't "fix" people, but they work with them to solve problems they're having. This treatment is a partnership requiring trust and care over time. The issues are intimate, and feelings of intense shame can come up. Healing and growth are a process. It's not a case of "fixing" something that is broken, but of assisting a fellow human to find his/her way. Yes, there is hope for pd.
