Aims and Scope

Personality and Mental Health: Multidisciplinary Studies from Personality Dysfunction to Criminal Behaviour aims to lead and shape the international field in this rapidly expanding area, uniting three distinct literatures: DSM-IV/ICD-10 defined personality disorders, psychopathy and offending behaviour.

Through its multi-disciplinary and service orientated approach, Personality and Mental Health provides a peer-reviewed, authoritative resource for researchers, practitioners and policy makers working in the areas of personality and mental health.

We encourage exchange amongst researchers, as well as debate amongst practitioners and policy makers in this high-profile area. Personality and Mental Health provides an innovative platform for the publication of new approaches to treatment, assessment and service delivery.

Personality and Mental Health encourages the following submissions: 

   Reviews and original research articles, including rapid communications

   Clinical case studies, with commentaries by, for example, lawyers, ethicists, service users, etc.

   Ideas for relevant special issues

We also invite research in associated areas to include service and organisational evaluation and development, law, policy and ethics, research methodology, research practice and dissemination, and education and training.


Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, prison and probation officers, policy makers
