Overview

Praise for the first edition. . .

"This book should be read by everyone who wishes to reclaim the lost land of personality theory and personality disorders (it's so good that I was tempted to say read by anyone who has a personality). This book can be applauded as a companion volume to DSM-III. . . Then, too, it can be appreciated for its thorough and scholarly style." —Journal of Personality Assessment

". . .an impressive effort to bring together the clinical literature on personality disorders . . .

A very useful book. . . —Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

". . .an important source for clinicians and researchers seeking a more comprehensive understanding of these major clinical entities . . . Exhaustively documented and yet written and presented in a clear and simple way, this work is among the most thorough and up-to-date texts in the field and will be particularly valuable for students being introduced to psychiatric diagnosis." —Library Journal

". . .an excellent descriptive book . . .its strength lies in the reality of its case-work material. A book for practitioners. . . —British Journal of Psychiatry

"Dr. Millon's book is scholarly, comprehensive, well organized, and gracefully written. . . .Millon is equally adept at critically and encyclopedically summarizing the psychoanalytic, constitutional, temperamental, behavioral, phenomenologic, interpersonal, and social learning theories of personality development and disorder. . . .This is by far the best available text on personality disorders and will be of great interest to clinicians and researchers alike." —American Journal of Psychiatry

"The book contains a great deal of information on topics about which DSM-III is either carefully guarded or silent. It can be appreciated as representing the point of view of one highly respected dean of personality and psychopathology. . . .one joins Millon in a serious consideration of how each personality disorder developed, what it is like intraphysically and psychodynamically, the manifold ways in which it can express itself, all the complicated other disorders with which it may combine, and the richness of prognostic possibilities." —Contemporary Psychology

Disorders of Personality: DSM-IVTM and Beyond is the fully revised Second Edition of Theodore Millon's landmark work on personality disorders. Indeed, Dr. Millon has been universally recognized as a pioneer and leading authority in this rapidly evolving field. As one of the founders of the Journal of Personality Disorders, a prime organizer of the International Society for the Study of Personality Disorders, and a full member of the DSM-IVTM, Axis II Work Group, he has played a dominant role in shaping the character of this extraordinarily challenging area of psychological study.

In this new edition, practitioners, researchers, teachers, and students will find the same clarity of insight that made the previous edition the standard text on personality disorders. Like its predecessor, the Second Edition guides the reader through the special complexities of this group of disorders and aids clinicians in the difficult work of diagnosis. It serves as an indispensable companion volume to DSM-IVTM, especially in the light of advances that have transformed personality disorders from an area of marginal relevance in diagnostic practice to one that is now central to the comprehensive multiaxial format. Major revisions and an almost doubling in length make this book more valuable than ever before:

  • A revised theoretical framework—from a learning theory-biosocial framework to a more evolutionary model that includes constructs applicable to phylogenesis and human adaptive styles
  • An expansion of the 15 basic personality prototypes into personality disorder subcategories, resulting in over 60 additional adult subtypes
  • An enlarged review of historical and contemporary thinking on personality disorders that makes this an invaluable single sourcebook for evaluating various theories
  • A substantial expansion of the "Clinical Picture" section of each chapter now incorporates eight realms of patient data, and therefore facilitates the selection of modalities of therapeutic intervention

Comprehensive reviews of the newer personality prototypes, such as avoidant, narcissistic, borderline, schizotypal, depressive, sadistic, and masochistic

  • Detailed discussion of frequent Comor-bid Axis I and Axis II diagnoses—a feature especially useful to those in managed care practices
  • An instructive discussion of childhood personality disorders, a subject frequently ignored in the literature
  • Major new chapters on personality assessment and personality therapy, including an up-to-date review of available instruments
  • Expanded and detailed discussion of short-term, focused therapy

Comprehensive, authoritative, and superbly organized, Disorders of Personality: DSM-IVTM and Beyond is an absolutely essential resource for psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and social workers, teachers, students, researchers, and all others who seek greater understanding of the complex web of human personality disorders.

"...features expanded coverage of therapeutic intervention, & many more common 'mixed' personality types are extensively illustrated in the coverage of these disorders that are extremely difficult to diagnose."
