About the book

The personality traits cover the broad range of psychological characteristics of healthy and ill persons. The pathological personality features may be regarded as risk factors for some psychopathological disorders and can lead to their appearance in the future. The main task of a psychiatrist's work concerns the exact and timely diagnosis of mental illness and its treatment. The diagnosis itself includes the understanding of the premorbid personality structure, and determination of the mental disorder prognosis based on the premorbid personality traits analysis. In this context, the role and significance of premorbid personality traits can't be exaggerated.

The current book aims at addressing all mentioned issues and will include three main topics. In the first topic, the history of personality features description will be presented in the full variety. The second topic will present the data on the relationships between different personality traits, and comorbid psychopathological disorders following from certain personality constructs. The third topic will present the different therapeutic approaches to pathological personality types and comorbid psychopathological disorders.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Tikel

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
