Lee Anna Clark takes the reader through a life review, divided into four broad sections: (1) Her early years to the end of her formal education, subdivided into pre-college, college and “gap” years, graduate school, and post-doctoral years, including marrying and beginning a family. (2) Her first faculty position, which she term the “Developmental Phase,” including the development of the Tripartite Model of depression and anxiety and my personality assessment measure, the Schedule for Nonadaptive and Adaptive Personality (SNAP). (3) A mid-career “Validation Phase,” subtitled the “Waiting Phase,” in which she expound upon key collaborations she developed, her students’ research, the role of professional organizations in her career, family life, particularly raising children, and service in administration. (4) The “Culmination Phase” in the later years of her career, during which she was immersed in the revision of the DSM-5 and the ICD-11. In each section, her major focus is on the evolution of my conceptualization of personality and personality pathology, but she also devote a good portion of the chapter to the personal and field-wide contexts in which that evolution took place.
