This chapter examines recent trends in personality disorder research as they appear in one of the top personality disorder journals—Personality Disorders: Theory, Research, and Treatment (PDTRT). The chapter provides an overview of the history of PDTRT, as well as describes the types of submissions and manuscripts published in the journal over the last 5 years. It also reports on research trends over that time period, noting increasing interest in the alternative model for personality disorders, the surfeit of research in borderline personality disorder and psychopathy, the increasing use of dimensional versus categorical approaches, the use of nonclinical samples, and the extension of personality disorder traits to younger populations.
