Product Description

Review

"Personality disorders are debilitating conditions that, unfortunately, are far too commonly encountered in modern society. Fortunately, this remarkable volume shows just how far we have come in having the tools needed to successfully intervene when we encounter these conditions in the clinic. Particularly welcome in this third edition is the increased emphasis on connecting cognitive interventions with empirically based, dimensional models of personality disorder, such as the Alternative DSM-5 Model. An indispensable resource for students, practitioners, and researchers alike."--Robert F. Krueger, PhD, Hathaway Distinguished Professor and Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Psychology, University of Minnesota "Cognitive Therapy of Personality Disorders, Third Edition is a new classic. This outstanding volume is completely updated with extensive reviews of research, new conceptualizations and techniques, and filled with wisdom about the therapeutic relationship and other roadblocks to change. Every therapist interested in working with personality disorders--which should be every therapist--will want to read this volume and benefit from the clinical insights provided. I highly recommend this excellent resource."--Robert L. Leahy, PhD, Director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy; Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College
