Avoidant Personality Disorder

This animated student project shows the lifespan of someone with avoidant personality disorder. An animated character, a junior park ranger, seems distraught as he goes about his work.

His telephone has cobwebs on it and his appearance (in person and in photos) expresses his unhapiness. It rewinds to his childhood, showing a parent who harshly scolded him as a child.

He has difficulty approaching his peers and interacting in play. When invited to a party, he attends and notices an attractive girl but doesnt pursue her because he lacks confidence. He describes his feelings in a journal entry. What aspects of avoidant personality disorder are not shown in this clip?
