There exist a plethora of definitions to the concept of delusion. Some are quite general, some more specific, and some more in-depth. Yet, it is accepted that preventing or curing delusional thinking has not yet acquired a tactical procedure or approach. Ostensibly, this means that the essence of any bona fide delusion is simply not understood by the vast majority of theoretical and/or practicing clinicians. Historically, it means that the trigger, the motive, and the psychic arrangement of forces of the phenomenon defined as delusion have been elusive. Dr. Kellerman, the author of Personality: How it Forms, brings the problem of delusion into sharper focus for a better understanding.

Spanning a 60-year career in the field of mental health, Dr. Henry Kellerman has held professional academic appointments in the psychology doctoral programs at several universities and clinical appointments at mental hospitals. In addition, he was the director of the psychology internship program at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health in New York City, where he was also a training analyst and senior supervisor in the centerís Psychoanalytic Institute. He holds fellow status in the American Psychological Association, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and the Academy of Psychoanalysis, and is a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Psychoanalysis, of the American Board of Professional Psychology. Dr. Kellermanís books published by the American Mental Health Foundation include: Personality: How it Forms; Anatomy of Delusion; Thereís No Handle on My Door: Stories of Patients in Mental Hospitals; Psychotherapeutic Traction: Uncovering the Patientís Power-Theme and Basic-Wish; Group Psychotherapy and Personality: A Theoretical Model; and Curing Psychological Symptoms.
