Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

New in the Wiley Series in Forensic Clinical Psychology, Personality, Personality Disorder and Violence takes an evidence-based look at personality traits and types of psychological functioning that may contribute to personality disorder and violence, and the connections that lie between them.

Each chapter tackles a specific area of personality or psychological functioning and is theoretically based, including a developmental perspective, discussion of what should be assessed for gauging risk and evaluating risk reduction, and an outline of effective treatments. Personality traits covered include impulsivity, aggressiveness, narcissism, and The Big Five (neuroticism, extraversion, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness). Psychological functioning analysis includes neuroaffective processing, emotion recognition and empathy deficits. The book concludes with implications for research and practice.
