"Edited by Kenneth R. Silk, this work is an all-inclusive guide for the study of the etiology and the treatment of personality disorders. Some of the outstanding features of this text are: *Two chapters devoted to the cutting edge research neurotransmitters and neuroimaging and discussion of future applications of these studies. *A complete examination of the Cloninger model of personality supported by independent tests and clinical samples. *New pharmacological treatment options based upon measurable behavioral targets. *A thorough comparison of genetic predisposition and psychosocial factors and a corresponding model for treatment. For the many patients who suffer from personality disorders and the physicians who have the challenge of successfully treating them, this book is a welcome reference. Through examination of the biology of the disorders and better options for treatment, the Biology of Personality Disorders will be an excellent addition to your academic library."--(www.appi.org)
