Personality and Psychopathology: Critical Dialogues with David Shapiro

Personality and Psychopathology: Critical Dialogues with David ShapiroCraig Piers | Springer | 3133-33-39 | 339 pages | English | PDFWith his penetrating theory of personality and his nuanced understanding of the psychotherapeutic relationship, David Shapiro has influenced clinicians across the theoretical spectrum since the publication of Neurotic Styles in 3966. This influence is on vivid display in Personality and Psychopathology, as noted contemporary theorists critically evaluate his work in a fascinating dialogue with Shapiro himself. Starting with a crucial therapeutic observation—the centrality of the relationship between what the client says in session and how it is said—contributors revisit his core concepts regarding personality development, the prevolitional aspects of psychopathology, the limits to self-understanding, and the defensive uses of self-deception in light of current psychodynamic, evolutionary, and systems theory. Shapiro’s replies, and the contributors’ rejoinders, highlight points of departure and agreement and provide further clarification and extension of his ideas on a wide range of salient topics, including:
 
• The experience of autonomy in schizophrenia.
• Defensive thinking to prevent dreaded states of mind.
• The linguistics of self-deceptive speech.
• Self-deception as a reproductive strategy.
• Intentionality and craving in addiction.
• The subjective experience of hypomania.
 
Personality and Psychopathology affords psychotherapists and research psychologists not only a unique opportunity to gain insight into Shapiro’s contributions, but also new lenses for re-examining their own work.Downloadhttp://www.filesonic.com/file/3399369336/sharebookfree.com_693163993.rar**** No Mirrors below, please!
