The book is done! RE Depressive Personality Disorder

Post  Admin on Tue Apr 28, 2009 1:15 pm

I'm happy to announce that the book "Depressive Personality Disorder: Understanding Current Trends in Research and Practice" is finished and at the printer. It is now available for preorder from the author using a paypal checkout at

This is only for a very short time and the deal will be gone before May 8th, 2009. I am donating 25% of the gross from the proceeds of the preorder to charity, the retail price is $34.95 however I am also throwing in free priority shipping. It will ship in early to mid May.

Can you think of a person you may have met or treated whose usual mood was gloomy and unhappy, were they critical of themselves and did they brood and tend to worry? Did they tend to be negative and judgmental toward others? Were they pessimistic and prone to feeling guilty or remorseful? Did this person have a Depressive Personality Disorder?

This book answers the question "Does Depressive Personality Disorder exist?" with a concise, readable review of current research. DPD is a valid and clinically useful concept which should be included in DSM-V and ICD-11. DPD was offered as both a diagnosis for further study and an example of a diagnosis that can be made under Personality Disorder NOS in the DSM-IV and DSM-IV-TR. The book is intended for professionals, students and anyone else interested in character traits which impact mood. It offers a view of depressive personality disorder supported by current research. Gain a firm background in recent research and theory on DPD and understand its relationship to chronic depression, dysthymic disorder, cognitive vulnerabilities to depression and the Five-Factor Model of Personality.

Thanks again for your interest, if you have any questions let me know
