This book provides a framework for scholars and clinicians to develop a comprehensive and dynamic understanding of antisocial, narcissistic, and borderline personality disorders, by seeing personality as a dual, as opposed to a singular, construct.

Converging the two separate research and clinical diagnostic systems into a wholistic model designed to reach reliable and valid diagnostic conclusions, the text examines adaptive and maladaptive personality development and expression, while addressing the interpersonal system that keeps the pathology from extinguishing. Each chapter will discuss core and surface content, origin and symptom manifestation, system and pathology perpetuation, and online behavior expression, concluding with practical guidance on treatment success and effective approaches.

Seasoned and tyro researchers and clinicians will be challenged to explore the utility of the DSM-5 alternative model of personality disorders and apply it to further the understanding of these complex, and often destructive, disorders.


"Daniel Fox, PhD, has written a highly sophisticated book that explores every facet of three personality disorders in great depth: antisocial, narcissistic, and borderline personality disorder. Designed for both clinicians and researchers, this detailed examination of these three personality disorders should prove to be a helpful asset in every professional’s library."

Sherry Cormier, PhD, Licensed Psychologist

"Dr. Fox has written a book that broadens the utility of the alternative DSM-5 model of personality disorders to researchers and clinicians by providing a model of efficacy and understanding that anyone in the field would find beneficial. He addresses the developmental and dynamic underpinnings of these disorders (i.e., core structure), the more overt aspects (i.e., surface structure), the factors that lead to enduring psychopathology, and a successful treatment approach using a comprehensive model. Lastly, Dr. Fox examines the online behavior of those individuals with borderline, narcissistic, and antisocial personality and puts it into a useful context for researchers and clinicians. I highly recommend this book as a resource for all working with personality disorders."

Russ Wood, PhD, Licensed Psychologist

"I am glad to see that Dr. Fox has expanded his previous work on personality disorders. His current work addresses the DSM-5 traditional and alternative models of personality disorders. Since these models are often confusing and in need of clarification. He focuses on the antisocial, borderline and narcissistic types in speaking to the diagnostic and therapeutic issues. For those of us that have worked with persons with personality disorders, it is often difficult to identify personality disorders because of the overlapping of symptoms within and at times between the three clusters found in the DSM-5 traditional model. Fox explains the new alternative dimensional model and adds to the conceptualization and structure by incorporating additional models of psychopathology. The integrative model is comprehensive in addressing impairment and severity of pathology across diagnostic therapeutic interventions. Fox explains various therapeutic alerts in working with these three personality disorders, addressing levels of functioning, pathological behaviors, pervasiveness and stability, and makes suggestions for treatment innovations, and provides case studies for each disorder. Dr. Fox’s new work is an integrative theory helping to explain personality disorders and assists providers with a map for diagnosis, treatment and intervention. He even includes online behaviors for the three personality disorders. I find that this integrative model has relevance to other disorders including depressive and anxiety disorders. This work will become a valued addition to one’s professional library and likely text for courses addressing the diagnosis and treatment of antisocial, borderline and narcissistic personality disorders. The model will add to the understanding of personality disorders with new research paradigms."
