Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of psychotherapy papers (classic and lesser known) is an extremely useful starting point for any mental health professional working with individuals with personality disorder. Many of the papers cover clinical material which will be familiar to those experienced in the field, as well as being a focus to provoke thought and discussion in clinical teams at the coal face of everyday psychiatric work.
