In ""Personality-Guided Therapy in Behavioral Medicine"", the latest volume in the ""Personality-Guided Psychology"" series, Robert G. Harper integrates a broad research base on how personality type interacts with and affects the course of common medical conditions, such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. He illuminates why and how patients with specific personality attributes interact with their health care providers, make lifestyle choices that affect the course of disease, make use of psychosocial supports, and cope with the demands of illness as well as treatment. Filled with practical guidance and strategies for treatment in a hospital or outpatient setting, this book has the potential to be of great practical utility for clinicians. Researchers, too, should benefit from an understanding of the various personality disorders and their implications for prevention and treatment.
