Encourage patients with avoidant personality disorder to participate in as many social activities as can be tolerated. In children, encourage parents to help their child confront their fears without setting them up for repeated failure. Some individuals find that social encounters can be better tolerated and even enjoyed if they have a specific job or role to play.
