Overview

This new edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Personality Disorders was developed in response to the continuing and increased activity and progress in the field of personality studies and personality disorders. It offers updated information on those topics that are essential to today's clinicians, from the foundational first section on clinical concepts and etiology, to subsequent sections on treatment; special problems, populations, and settings; and future directions. The book provides the clinical wisdom, scientific rigor, and current treatment information readers expect from a comprehensive text while honoring constructive disagreement by presenting a variety of viewpoints from experts in the field, particularly in the area of classification.

Personality disorders are estimated to occur in over 10% of the general population, with well-documented significance to public health and incalculable impact on individual patients and their families. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Personality Disorders equips clinicians with the most up-to-date research, illustrative case examples, and nuanced analyses, enabling them to provide excellent patient care and to alleviate suffering.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Daniel E. Levin, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive, authoritative, highly referenced and usable textbook on personality disorders.
Purpose: The editors set out to recruit the leading authorities on the topic of personality disorders to write chapters on their areas of expertise, in order to compile an up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative textbook on the subject. The field has needed this exact type of book. The editors have succeeded in meeting their goals.
Audience: These top scholars have written a book appropriate and useful for all interested clinicians, faculty, and most students in search of a comprehensive review of the topic of personality disorders.
Features: The book includes 41 chapters covering almost all of the most important topics in the field of personality disorders that the intended audience would be interested in reviewing. The outstanding aspects of this book are the editors' success in obtaining contributions from so many leading writers, researchers, and clinicians, the comprehensiveness of the coverage, and the clarity of the writing on complex subjects. The only shortcoming is the need for a possibly longer, basic chapter for a beginning student reviewing the personality disorders listed in DSM-IV-TR.
Assessment: This is the first edition of this comprehensive textbook on personality disorders. The editors and the authors should be congratulated for assembling this outstanding textbook. This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date book I have seen on the topic and it is clearly and authoritatively written.
