This chapter notes that much research has examined the onset and stability of personality disorders through early adulthood with very little research examining personality disorders from middle adulthood to later life. The chapter outlines important issues and questions that should be addressed by studies concerned with personality pathology in older adults. It also reviews key findings from the St. Louis Personality and Aging Network (SPAN) Study.
