Sacred texts also provide descriptions of personality virtues and vices that have similarity to traits presented in the DSM-5.  This presentation will examine the concept of personality functioning in the DSM-5 with the concept of vice and virtue in sacred text to construct an integration of mental healthcare and spiritual care for the treatment of impaired personality functioning.
