Personality Disorders in Children and Adolescents

Synopsis

Kernberg (psychiatry, Cornell University Medical College and The New York Presbyterian Hospital-Westchester Division), Weiner (psychology, at the same institutions), and Bardenstein (psychology and psychiatry, Case-Western Reserve University) have assembled both the evidence and a theoretical framework to suggest that personality disorders can be diagnosed and treated in children and adolescents. A developmental perspective informs their identification of emerging pathological features at all levels of personality organization -- neurotic, borderline, and psychotic. Special attention is given to the relationship between personality disorders and gender identity, suicidality, substance abuse, and cultural and family background. The authors inflect their review of differential methods with material from the published literature, as well as evidence drawn from their own clinical research and practice.
