Updated for the DSM-5, this small book with big plans is a fun, concise and practical introduction to the ten personality disorders. Each chapter has unique graphics and illustrations, movie examples, memory aids, interview findings, a review of presumed etiology and an overview of a variety of treatment options. We fixed the old spelling mistakes and made some new ones. New features in this edition are: revised mnemonics, updated movie references, improved graphics and special topics (in some of the chapters).
