about

Johnson shows how basic life issues underlie the severe pathology of personality disorder, the nagging symptoms of neurosis, and the more functional coping and adaptation of the character styles. Johnson’s dimensional model captures the complexity of the human personality, while allowing for variability not seen in categorical systems such as DSM-IV. His descriptive names of the character styles not only link childhood experiences to later personality and psychopathology but also put flesh and bones on psychiatric diagnosis.

From Our Editors

Presenting an integrated personality theory, this book shows how basic existential and developmental issues underlie the severe pathology of personality disorders, the nagging symptoms of neurosis, and the more functional coping and adaptation of character styles. It details both an external description of these personalities along the continuum of psychic structure and the internal experience that makes human behavior understandable and worthy of empathy
