  • Description
  • Details

With graduate students and professionals new to the field in mind, this book provides information about the central issues that are being addressed by researchers and clinicians in the realm of normal-abnormal personality today. In addition, it provides essential terminology, ideas, and methods that are unique to the field at large as well as basic tools needed to become a participant in normal-abnormal psychology.

This long-awaited, completely new update to a classic text offers a state-of-the-art overview of a rapidly growing field that seeks to integrate the study of normal and abnormal personality. Written by some of the most influential personologists of the 21st century, including Aaron Beck, C. Robert Cloninger, Robert McCrae, and Theodore Millon, chapters show how current theories, statistical methods, and assessment instruments can be used to understand the entire spectrum of personality functioning, from normal to disordered.

Divided into three parts, the book presents an overview of major theories, statistical methods, and measurement instruments, including:
* Seven influential models of personality and psychopathology
* Four statistical methods for use in taxonomy, diagnosis, similarities and differences between normal and abnormal personality, and genetic and environmental influences
* Problems and pitfalls in designing empirical studies in the realm of normal-abnormal personality
* Empirically-based introductions and reviews of five widely-used instruments for assessing normal-abnormal personality
