  • Details

Utilizing one specific case study of Antisocial Personality Disorder, Rotgers and Maniacci present experts in the field with various models of treatment.

Patients with antisocial personality disorder (APD) have traditionally been considered difficult ot treat, or even untreatable, with psychotherapy. Recent clinical and research developments, however, have begun to change this view. In this book. both experienced and novice clinicians will gain an understanding of the developments in this area of psychotherapy.

Rotgers and Maniacci present experts in the field of various models of treatment, among them Adlerian, biosocial-learning, motivational interviewing, Rogerian and psychopharmacological, to identify treatment goals, select assessment tools, conceptualize progression, pinpoint pitfalls, develop techniques, and move toward a successful therapeutic completion. By providing a brief overview of APD, discussing the ongoing controversies regarding the construct of APD, and assessing the responses to the same set of questions posed to each expert, the authors offers a glimpse into the difficult world of antisocial personality disorder.
