"[Provides] an excellent and thoughtfully constructed model." ?John Edward Ruark (PsycCRITIQUES, February 2008) "Theodore Millon and his colleague Seth Grossman have been key players in the assessment and treatment of personality disorders for decades. They accurately describe the current state of affairs in psychotherapy practice, in which therapists trained in and committed to a single approach, tend to observe patients through only one lens and to adopt a one-size-fits-all strategy for treatment. This volume definitely made me look forward to its promised successors." (PsycCRITIQUES, February 27, 2008)
