Question and answer
key strengths and limitations of the psychiatric classification system
Strengths of Psychiatric Classification and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders include that it provides a well designed standard, [ and comprehensive diagnostic tool for clinicians and it allows physicians to look at the complete psychological make-up of a person. Limitations: The DSM uses a categorical approach vs. a dimensional approach to personality disorder diagnosis 2. The DSM does
not account for the relative importance of various symptoms, and the descriptions of symptom criteria are overly broad. This means that patients diagnosed with the same disorder may have very dissimilar clinical presentations. There is a high degree of overlap or co-occurrence of Axis II personality disorders with each other, and other Axis I mental disorders. ]
