Hi Dani

If all chapters of a book are written by the same author who is also the author of the book, then reference it as a book.

If this is an edited book, some chapters are written by the same authors, but not the editors, then you can reference them as book chapters from a edited book. To distinguish them, you need to add a, b, c after the year of publication, both in-text and in your reference list. For example (Smith 1990a) and (Smith 1990b). 

Hope this helps,

Meijun
