  • An evidence-based examination of those personality traits and types of psychological functioning that may contribute to personality disorder and violence- and the links that can be made between the two
  • Each chapter tackles an area of personality or psychological functioning and includes a developmental perspective, discussion of how to gauge risk, and an outline of effective treatments
  • Traits covered include impulsivity, aggressiveness, narcissism and the ‘Big Five’ - neuroticism, extraversion, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness
  • New for the prestigious Wiley Series in Forensic Clinical Psychology, a market leader with more than 20,000 books in print

From the Back Cover:

'The role of personality disorder in violence remains one of the key concerns in modern forensic practice. The editors are to be congratulated for having created this excellent volume bringing together leading scholars and practitioners in the field. The result is a volume that is scientifically robust yet clinically relevant; a comprehensive volume that has much for both the researcher and the clinician. It is not merely focused on the usual suspect - psychopathy - but provides a much broader perspective by formulating the causal processes underpinned by problems in attachment, empathy and cognition. A must -read for those who work with offenders.' - David J Cooke

'This book makes a timely and important contribution to the field of forensic psychology, exploring the relationship between personality disorder, traits, cognition and affect and antisocial and criminal behaviour. The internationally respected authors are expert sin their fields. Finding constructive approaches that reduce offending behaviours is in everyone's interest.' - Professor Kate Davidson

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.
