This collection of well-written, concise articles by international leaders in the field is a thorough exploration of the psychodynamic treatment of personality disorders. The editors have approached the topic from 3 perspectives, each constituting a section of the book: (I) Personality Pathology: Defining the Focus of Intervention, (II) Psychodynamic Treatment Approaches, and (III) Research and Future Directions. The volume provides a comprehensive overview of the field as well as practical information that is expected from a clinical handbook.
