Example text

This superordinate theory lies literally at a higher level of formulation than do the individual measures constituting the “raw data” of the assessment. Thus the “loop” from idiographic individuality to nomothetic commonality to nomothetic individuality is brought to closure: Nomothetic individuality explicitly requires the reintegration of the individual, who currently lies fractionated among various scales and dimensions. An integrative assessment, then, does not come into being of its own accord, but is constructed, and its validity is linked to the mode of its construction.

As a general philosophy, specific treatment techniques are selected as tactics to achieve polarity-oriented balances. Depending on the pathological polarity to be modified, and the integrative treatment sequence one has in mind, the goals of therapy are these, in general: to overcome pleasure deficiencies in persons with schizoid, avoidant, and depressive styles and disorders; to reestablish interpersonally imbalanced polarity disturbances in dependent, histrionic, narcissistic, and antisocial persons; to undo intrapsychic conflicts in sadistic, compulsive, masochistic, and negativistic persons; and, lastly, to reconstruct structural defects in schizotypal, borderline, and paranoid persons (Millon, 1999).

Following Pepper (1942), we might say this: The individual scales, instruments, and other data are the (1) fragments. These possess (2) nexuses, implications, or (statistically) 12 INTRODUCTION intercorrelations both with each other and with other clinical phenomena, leading to inchoate theories about the individual and his or her psychopathology. Inevitably, these theories do not mesh; they cannot be assimilated to each other exactly, leading to (3) contradictions, gaps, or inconsistencies in the assessment thus far.
