This fresh exploration of the utility of "person schemas" for understanding interpersonal behavior and intrapsychic conflict brings together psychoanalytic researchers, social learning theorists, and cognitive scientists. The contributors show that a fuller conceptualization of person schemas can begin to close the gap between psychodynamic and cognitive science research, providing new methods for understanding disorders of personality. "There are many strengths in this volume beyond the clear presentation of the person schema as a concept linking cognitive and psychodynamic perspectives...Students will have an opportunity for comparison of perspectives while those working in the field will have an opportunity to follow the shift from concept to method to case application to theoretical context for understanding personality change."--Bertram J.
