Abstract

This article suggests two areas of future development in the realm of personality pathology. Firstly, a reconceptualization of personality pathology in the context of research evidence suggestive of a single model for psychopathology. Recent work on the “p factor”, in combination with findings from clinical research, behavior genetics, molecular biology and neurobiological models are considered in relation to this reconceptualization of personality pathology. Secondly, a cultural-developmental model for personality pathology is proposed, based on the Gergely and Csibra’s work on natural pedagogy, Tomasello’s work on joint attention and intentionality, and our recent work on epistemic trust and the social-communicative nature of psychopathology.
