About the Authors
  • This must-have reference is a unique exploration of how the individual notion of 'self' and related constructs, such as early schemas and attachment styles, impact on psychopathology, psychotherapy processes and treatment outcomes for psychological disorders across DSM-5, such as depression, bipolar and schizophrenia spectrum disorders, anxiety and trauma, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, autism, personality disorders, gender identity disorder, dementia and somatic problems such as chronic fatigue syndrome. It discusses the role of the concept of self in a wide range of existing theoretical and treatment frameworks, and relates these to real-life clinical issues and treatment implications. Emphasizing the importance of integrating an awareness of self constructs into evidence-based conceptual models, it offers alternative practical intervention techniques, suggesting a new way forward in advancing our understanding of psychological disorders and their treatment.

    • Provides an up-to-date overview of existing literature on the concept of self from a social psychological, clinical, personality, cognitive, philosophical, neuroscientific and experimental perspective, enhancing the reader's understanding of the concept and factors influencing the development of the self
    • Organized by chapters addressing specific psychological and cognitive disorders, making it an easy-to-use reference whilst also providing a comprehensive overview of the role of self in different disorders
    • Covers all major approaches that have a widespread practitioner base and that have existing or emerging evidence bases, including psychological and cognitive disorders representing major groups within diagnostic taxonomies such as the DSM-5

    "The Self in Understanding and Treating Psychological Disorders is a treasure trove of information for both researchers and clinical practitioners. It offers plenty of useful insights as well as fascinating findings from research. The different chapters complement each other effectively. The human self is an important foundation for any quest to understand human nature and human behavior, and these chapters vividly and clearly describe what happens to the self in the context of psychopathology. The book is an informative and thought-provoking read, useful for anyone wanting an introduction or update to this vast and fast-moving field."
    Roy F. Baumeister, Florida State University, and author of Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength
