Biometric Definitions of Personality (BDP)

(formerly) The Illustrated Textbook of Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis
and Therapy

by Arnold Holtzman, Ph.D.

3rd HUGE 600 page edition for professional behavioral specialists.
With 2nd addendum: Biometric Markers of Psychopathology


This new edition brings together in one extended volume the complete original edition with the new critically important 2nd addendum. This addendum introduces entirely new and clearly identified biometric markers of mental health disorders. In clinical work they permit identifying a comprehensive range of neurotic and pathological circumstances underlying their specific etiologies.

Biometric Definitions of Personality (BDP), formerly Psychodiagnostic Chirology (PDC), is a singularly unique, state-of-the-art, discipline in psychological diagnosis introduced in a language most layman would understand. Laboratory tested.

With Biometric Markers of Psychopathology it delivers an accuracy and reliability that surpass any battery of tests presently available to the professional clinician. More than giving the measure to traits, capabilities, intellectual potential and sexual (libidinal) expressions among other constructions in personality, it focuses powerfully on how personality is given shape, and how behaviors assume their patterns.

The original work introduces syndromes that are wholly unknown in professional literature. Yet the most distinguished academicians and clinical psychologists today have endorsed this new material - indeed the discipline in its entirety - with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in this field of study.




The PDC textbook is now a 600 page laminated softcover edition printed on high gloss chrome paper.

A huge, powerfully moving, and very intense Jewish saga. Its world is a pulsing, turn of the last century theatre beginning in Eastern Europe and shifting to the steamy St. Urbain Street ghetto in Montreal. Its stage is the labyrinth of an ancient biblical destiny with its players driven by every deadly sin. “An engaging read…” Chuck Shelton from KIRKUS REVIEWS.
