"PDM finally has given clinicians--as well as researchers and theorists--an alternative to DSM, which is largely based on symptom counting. As the editors state, PDM provides a 'taxonomy of people' rather than a 'taxonomy of disorders.' While the first edition was a monumental achievement, the second edition is even more impressive. It is an invaluable resource not only for diagnostic purposes, but also for teaching and research. I recommend this book to anyone--psychologist, psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, social worker, or educator--interested in an ecologically valid way of assessing personality and mental functioning."--Morris N. Eagle, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished Educator-in-Residence, School of Graduate Psychology, California Lutheran University "People are more than their diagnoses. Diagnostic formulations rooted in the diversity and humanity of the people we aim to help and, at the same time, rooted in carefully evaluated empirical evidence represent the real gold standard in our field. This synthesis is precisely what PDM-2 aims for. The book will be of value both to practicing clinicians and to those teaching the next generation to think in ways that combine rigor with empathy for the client's experience."--Paul L. Wachtel, PhD, Distinguished Professor, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York
