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. Cohler, University of Chicago
