This book does exactly what its title promises... Here we have a valuable starting point for those whose everyday work involves dealing with personality disorder...Practical and thought-provoking. Author: The Psychologist

The volume is an especially accessible and useful resource, unravelling some of the many complexities associated with the disorder whilst encouraging a broader, yet deeper, understanding in mental health professionals. Author: British Journal of Social Work

This is an invaluable colection. Author: Therapy Today

Synopsis

"A Personality Disorder Reader" offers a comprehensive and accessible collection of papers that will be practically useful to practitioners working in secure and non-secure settings with patients who have personality disorders.This book brings together fourteen classic papers, which address the impact that working with personality disorder patients can have on staff. It also offers theoretical explanations for personality disorder, and explores other issues such as the concept of boundaries in clinical practice, psychiatric staff as attachment figures and the relationship between severity of personality disorder and childhood experiences. Each paper is introduced with contextual material, and is followed by a series of questions that are intended to be used as educational exercises. This book will be essential reading for clinical and forensic psychologists, psychiatrists, community psychiatric nurses, social workers and students.
