Acknowledging the primacy of the whole person, Moderating Severe Personality Disorders: A Personalized Psychotherapy Approach takes into account all of the complexities of human nature—family influences, culture, neurobiological processes, unconscious memories, and so on—illustrating that no part of human nature should lie outside the scope of a clinician's regard.

Part of a three book series, this book provides you with a unique combination of conceptual background and step-by-step practical advice to guide your treatment of Axis II personality disorders.
