Personality and Psychopathology compiles the conclusions of more than 30 internationally recognized experts who each carefully examine the link between personality traits and psychopathology. Recent findings have clarified the importance of personality in the development and expression of psychopathology.

In light of such discoveries, this reference examines the relationship of personality traits with psychopathology from several interlocking perspectives -- descriptive, developmental, etiological, and therapeutic. It successfully tackles • A description of the frequency and patterns of overlap between personality and psychopathology• The structure and stability of normal personality traits across the life span and their relation to psychopathology• An analysis of personality disorders from three different approaches• The causes of individual differences in personality and psychopathology from genetic, psychosocial, and neurobiological perspectives• The role of personality in the treatment of psychopathology

Complete with illustrative charts, this all-inclusive resource provides invaluable information on the link between personality and psychopathology.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.
