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, assessment, and treatment. This insightful guide introduces Transference-Focused Psychotherapy -- Extended (TFP-E), a specialized but accessible approach for any clinician interested in the skillful treatment of personality disorders. Compatible with the DSM-5 Section III Alternative Model for Personality Disorders -- and elaborating on that approach, this volume offers 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. In this book, readers will find: A coherent model of personality functioning and disorders based in psychodynamic object relations theory A clinically near approach to the classification of personality disorders, coupled with a comprehensive approach to assessment An integrated treatment model based on general clinical principles that apply across the spectrum of personality disorders An understanding of specific modifications of technique that tailor intervention to the individual patient's personality pathology Descriptions of specific psychodynamic techniques that can be exported to shorter-term treatments and acute clinical settings Patient assessment and basic psychodynamic techniques are described in up-to-date, jargon-free terms and richly 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 book both a quick reference tool as well as a springboard for continued learning. Clinicians looking for an innovative, trustworthy guide to understanding and treating personality pathology that combines contemporary theory with clinical practice need look no further than Psychodynamic Therapy for Personality Pathology: Treating Self and Interpersonal Functioning.
