"Theodore Millon and his colleague Seth Grossman have been keyplayers in the assessment and treatment of personality disordersfor decades. They accurately describe the current state of affairsin psychotherapy practice, in which therapists trained in andcommitted to a single approach, tend to observe patients throughonly one lens and to adopt a one-size-fits-all strategy fortreatment.
