"This book consists of three parts. The first is devoted to general issues about Personality disorders (PDs). Chapter 1 addresses thorny problems of definition and the uncertain boundary between PD and personality. Chapter 2 focuses on the relationships between traits and disorders and assesses the advantages and disadvantages of proposals to revised or replace the DSM system. Chapter 3 examines etiology and risk factors, and Chapter 4 reviews prevalence and outcome. The second part of the book is devoted to specific PD categories: Chapter 5 on antisocial PD, Chapter 6 on BPD, Chapter 7 on narcissistic PD, Chapter 8 on other PDs (schizotypal, schizoid, paranoid, histrionic, avoidant, obsessive-compulsive, dependent, and PD, not otherwise specified). The third part of the book concerns treatment. Chapter 9 examines the efficacy of pharmacotherapy, and Chapter 10 reviews evidence concerning the various psychotherapies developed for PD. Chapter 11 presents a general approach to management, with emphasis on the borderline category. Finally, Chapter 12 summarizes what we know about PD and what we need to find out"--Introduction.
