Description

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 per cent 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.
