Providing an integrated, innovative synthesis of contemporary psychodynamic approaches to psychotherapy embedded in a contemporary model of psychopathology, Psychodynamic Therapy for Personality Pathology: Treating Self and Interpersonal Functioning introduces Transference-Focused Psychotherapy Extended (TFP-E), a specialized, theory-driven approach to the treatment of personality disorders.
This guide is both compatible with the DSM-5 Section III Alternative Model for Personality Disorders and elaborates on it, offering clinicians at all levels of experience an accessible framework to guide evaluation and treatment of personality disorders in a broad variety of clinical and research settings.
Patient assessment and basic psychodynamic techniques are described in up-to-date, jargon-free terms and supported by numerous clinical vignettes, as well as online videos demonstrating interventions. At the end of each chapter, readers will find a summary of key clinical concepts, making this volume both a quick reference tool as well as a springboard for continued learning.
Deftly combining contemporary theory with clinical practice, Psychodynamic Therapy for Personality Pathology: Treating Self and Interpersonal Functioning is an invaluable resource for any clinician seeking a coherent model of personality functioning and pathology, classification, and assessment.
