Praise for Personality-Guided Therapy

"A comprehensive, innovative approach to the treatment of syndromal and personality disorders. This volume is a 'must read' for students as well as mental health professionals."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

"[Millon] masterfully integrates disparate systems of psychotherapy, as well as personality theory and clinical practice, in reminding us that psychotherapy is not, and never will be, a disembodied treatment of simple disorders, but rather textured interpersonal relationships with complex people. Brilliant in concept and amazing in scope!"--John C. Norcross, PhD, University of Scranton, President-elect, APA Division of Psychotherapy

"His freshly conceived focus on tailoring treatment modalities to fit individual patient's personality pattern adds an important new dimension to the psychological intervention literature."--Irving B. Weiner, PhD, University of South Florida

"[This book] provides par excellence the type of integrative thinking clinicians need, our training program should utilize, and our field is striving for."--John F. Clarkin, PhD, New York Hospital, Cornell Medical Center

"Students of various disciplines, as well as seasoned mental health professionals, will undoubtedly return again and again to this volume to glean a deeper understanding of personality functioning and to develop a greater appreciation of how to approach these disorders therapeutically. This volume is sure to prove a classic in the field."--Jeffrey J. Magnavita, PhD, ABPP, Connecticut Center for Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
