Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover


The Handbook of Personology and Psychopathology offers a state-of-the-art overview of a burgeoning field of inquiry that addresses the full spectrum of human personality and functioning, from normal to abnormal. Inspired by the seminal contributions and achievements of Theodore Millon, a major figure in the psychology profession and architect of a comprehensive theory of personology and psychopathology, this volume integrates knowledge from many scientific domains to provide a better grasp of the whole person.

Theories explaining human behavior abound, yet too often the theoretical perspective—be it focused on specific phenomena or global aspects of functioning—yields a description that falls short of the whole person. To fully understand both normal and abnormal behavior, forward-looking thinkers and practitioners spanning several different schools of thought are considering new, more integrative approaches. Theodore Millon's work in personology and psychopathology has charted a pioneering path towards a coherent system for understanding how people develop and live their lives.

This exciting new book reflects Millon's blueprint for an integrated clinical science, linking theory, classification, assessment, and therapy. Featuring contributions from leading international scholars, the five sections of the text cover:

  • A review of important conceptual issues
  • The boundaries of theoretical models
  • Coherent taxonomies and classification systems, as well as the empirically based propositions that support them
  • The value of assessment methods in terms of the classification systems that precede them
  • Therapeutic techniques derived from these theories and taxonomies, and integrated with appropriate assessment methods

Sure to become a classic, the Handbook of Personology and Psychopathology provides a fascinating review of this dynamic field of study.
