How basic existential and developmental issues underlie the severe pathology of personality disorders and symptoms of neurosis in character styles.


Some chapters have been revised from the author's earlier books, some are new--to comprise a culminating work that presents a theoretical and research-based dimensional model of personality. Johnson, a psychotherapist in private practice after 22 years in academe (U. of Oregon and Pacific Graduate School of Psychology), links childhood experiences to later personality and psychopathology, describing character styles such as the hated child, the abandoned child, the owned, the used, the defeated, the exploited, and the disciplined child.
