Deftly integrating contemporary psychiatry and contemporary psychoanalysis, Psychodynamic Therapy for Personality Pathology: Treating Self and Interpersonal Functioning introduces Dynamic Psychotherapy for Personality Disorders (DPD), a specialized, theory-driven approach to the treatment of personality disorders.

Beyond merely being compatible with the DSM-5 Section III Alternative Model for Personality Disorders, this guide elaborates on it, offering clinicians at all levels of experience an accessible framework to guide evaluation and treatment of personality disorders in a broad variety of clinical and research settings.

In this volume, readers will find: • A coherent model of personality functioning and disorders based in psychodynamic object relations theory• A clinically near approach to the classification of personality disorders, coupled with a comprehensive approach to assessment• An integrated treatment model based on general clinical principles that apply across the spectrum of personality disorders• An understanding of specific modifications of technique that tailor intervention to the individual patient's personality pathology• Descriptions of specific psychodynamic techniques that can be exported to shorter-term treatments and acute clinical settings

Patient assessment and basic psychodynamic techniques are described in up-to-date, jargon-free terms and richly supported by numerous clinical vignettes, as well as online videos demonstrating interventions. At the end of each chapter, readers will find a summary of key clinical concepts, making this book both a quick reference tool as well as a springboard for continued learning.

Clinicians looking for a novel guide to understanding and treating personality pathology that combines contemporary theory with clinical practice need look no further than Psychodynamic Therapy for Personality Pathology: Treating Self and Interpersonal Functioning.
