Summary

This chapter addresses one of the most serious matters in the study of personality disorder that is in danger of permanently handicapping understanding and treatment. It could, in the end, sabotage research and keep the subject as an esoteric one where only a small number of zealots communicate amongst themselves. It is a concern that the two highly respected handbooks recently published on personality disorder (Livesley and Larstone, 2018; Lejuez and Gratz, 2020) have no chapters or discussion sections on the stigma of personality disorders, despite its importance.
