Biometric Definitions of Personality (BDP)

3rd HUGE edition - by Arnold Holtzman, Ph.D.

(formerly) The Illustrated Textbook of Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis and Therapy

3rd HUGE 600 page edition for professional behavioral specialists. With 2nd addendum: Biometric Markers of Psychopathology

This new edition brings together in one extended volume the complete original edition with the new critically important 2nd addendum. This addendum introduces entirely new and clearly identified biometric markers of mental health disorders. In clinical work they permit identifying a comprehensive range of neurotic and pathological circumstances underlying their specific etiologies.

Biometric Definitions of Personality (BDP), formerly Psychodiagnostic Chirology (PDC), is a singularly unique, state-of-the-art, discipline in psychological diagnosis introduced in a language most laymen would understand. Laboratory tested.

With Biometric Markers of Psychopathology it delivers an accuracy and reliability that surpass any battery of tests presently available to the professional clinician. More than giving the measure to traits, capabilities, intellectual potential and sexual (libidinal) expressions among other constructions in personality, it focuses powerfully on how personality is given shape, and how behaviors assume their patterns.

The original work introduces syndromes that are wholly unknown in professional literature. Yet the most distinguished academicians and clinical psychologists today have endorsed this new material - indeed the discipline in its entirety - with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in this field of study.

The PDC textbook is now a massive 600 page laminated softcover edition printed on excellent high gloss chrome paper.

When a psychologist loses a client, the oft repeated excuse for his, or her, failure is that the client failed to contribute to the therapeutic program. The truth, however, is that the therapist had not the vaguest idea what might be at the very root of the neurotic circumstance. Psychiatrists would speak of a false epistemology. The psychologist depends entirely on how the client represents himself, or herself, when very few, if any, get past the myriad of entrenched defenses that block access to the true etiology of the disturbance. As often as not the stresses and traumas promoting the disorders originate in pre-conscious development stages – many near the very onset of life.

But there is a diagnostic discipline – Biometric Definitions of Personality – which permits immediate access to the etiology of virtually every neurotic or personality disorder. It is the source of all the evidence necessary to prove that psychology is a true science that lends itself admirably to testing and replication in a laboratory program. The future of psychological diagnosis is already here.
