The 1994 edition of this book has been a definitive resource for both researchers and clinicians interested in the applications of the five-factor model to personality disorders. Since the publication of the first edition, a steady flow of new empirical research has been conducted, and key theoretical developments have occurred.

This revised edition updates the book and offers nine important new chapters. A new chapter by the editors presents a comprehensive summary of 55 empirical studies published since 1994 on the relationship of the five factor model to personality disorder symptoms.

Additional new chapters cover

  • The history and conceptual background of the FFM
  • Five-factor translations of DSM-III-R and DSM-IV personality disorders
  • Empirical findings on the structure and symptomatology of personality disorders from the five-factor perspective
  • Application of the FFM to a variety of patient populations, including patients with borderline personality disorder, narcissism, and bulimia nervosa as well as substance abusers, psychopaths, and sex offenders
  • The use of standardized instruments to assess personality
  • The FFM's usefulness in tailoring treatment to the personality dimensions of particular patients
