Psychotherapy for Personality Disorders (Review of Psychiatry Series, vol. 19)

Joel J. Silvernan

Published: May 12, 2002

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Personality disorders, once a mainstay of psychiatry, have been relegated to the background. Training programs and managed care companies have focused on Axis I disorders, claiming rapid symptom resolution and positive prognoses. The carefully researched empirical evidence of the treatment efficacy of personality disorders has been largely ignored. Editors Gunderson and Gabbard remedy this situation with a well-documented, data-based, easily read book that deals with treatment for personality disorders.
