What makes a person from naturally good to bad? There are many factors, such as society, family, culture and so on.
The six that are included are: So what happened to the other four disorders Paranoid, Schizoid, Histrionic, and Dependent?
Well, this was one of the greater controversies of DSM It can be inferred from the text, the authors did not find sufficient research data to support the four omitted personality disorders.
This should not be taken to mean these disorders do not exist. For instance, due to the nature of the paranoid personality disorder, someone with this disorder is unlikely to seek help or volunteer for research.
Nonetheless, the authors of the DSM-5 alternative model can be applauded for their conscientious commitment to research. Each of the six specified personality disorders in Chapter III require a moderate, severe, or extreme impairment rating of personality functioning, and a specified number of pathological personality traits.
The number required, and the list of pathological traits, is unique to each personality disorder. For instance, the list for the Avoidant Personality Disorder requires at least three of the following: In contrast, the list for Narcissistic Personality has only two traits but both are required for diagnosis: This allows clinicians to note the presence of a personality disorder without requiring a specific name for it.
This offers a great deal more flexibility and descriptive information than the current categorical approach. It has the advantage of eliminating the need for vague diagnoses such as Other Specified and Unspecified Personality Disorder. It should be pointed out that the polar opposite side of each dimension does not necessarily reflect a healthy adaptive response.
For instance, the opposite of disinhibition is conscientiousness.
However, extreme conscientious equates to rigid perfectionism; a pathological trait listed for obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Extreme agreeableness equates to gullibility and make one an easy target for manipulation and abuse.
Therefore, as we have emphasized throughout, the key to healthy personality and adaptive functioning is flexibility.
Responses are varied according to the demands of each situation. Although this dimensional model is not the officially recognized diagnostic system of DSM-5, clinicians may use this method for greater specificity. It further provides a standard model for continued research so that we may further develop and expand our knowledge of this important area of mental health and human functioning.Reddit gives you the best of the internet in one place.
