This volume provides readers with all the information they need to know about personality disorders, including how to assess, treat, manage, and diagnose the varying signs and symptoms of the 10 different personality disorders currently recognized.

Having a personality disorder is different than having personality quirks. Personality quirks or eccentricities are considered normal; however, when certain dominant personality traits interfere with healthy psychological functioning, a personality disorder might be the cause. This next installment in Greenwood's Inside Diseases and Disorders series provides a complete overview of the 10 currently recognized personality disorders, as well as the myriad signs and symptoms that may lead to a diagnosis. Using the most recent scholarship and case studies, this volume aims to bring clarity to the topic of personality disorders, covering a wide range of topics from the history of assessing personality disorders to the ways in which a personality disorder may affect the family and friends of the patient.
