This guide covers general personality disorders and manifestation, neurological components, a developmental psychology approach to understanding how personality disorders develop and why they do not in some people. Each chapter on the individual personality disorders includes up-to-date information on etiology, prevalence, diagnosis from various sources above and beyond the DSM, case examples, and more.

The guide also includes proposed changes to be included in the DSM-5 and where the field of personality disorders is headed. The goal: To reduce maladaptive patterns, avoid treatment blocks, and reach greater stability and overall functioning for the client.
