Summary
In this authoritative edited volume, leading researchers and clinicians explore the premise that the Five-Factor Model (FFM) of personality is the most useful and comprehensive taxonomy for describing personality and for assessing and describing personality disorders. Although the FFM has already been productively applied to the study of normal personality, it is now proposed as an alternative, conceptually useful framework for understanding personality disorders. /// This book provides a comprehensive examination of both diagnostic and [psychotherapeutic and other] treatment issues of personality disorders, includes practical guidance for using standardized instruments to assess personality, and underscores the utility of the FFM's dimensional approach for understanding personality and personality disorders.
