Hi,

I don't know much about Masochistic Personality Disorder. You say you are in counseling - is that the two of you, together? Can you ask that therapist to do a diagnosis? Or recommend someone who she can see individually for a diagnosis? Then you would be sure that you are looking for the right kind of help.

One thing I've found helpful in the past is to search on the internet or in University libraries for books on the subject. If you find one author dominates, then they are an expert. You can also look at the references in significant books and see who wrote those books/articles.

If you find that Theodore Millon is the expert (I assume he is affiliated with a university), then I would contact him. Either write a letter or email.

I wrote a letter to a Psychologist once. She didn't write back personally, but had an assistant write back to me and sent 4 or 5 articles for me to read. That was helpful.

You can also keep your eye out on Clinical Trials, to see if anything is available.

I have found that reading about my afflictions has given me better understanding, and a sense of peace. I wish you and your wife all the best.
