1.2 explain the key strengths and limitations of the psychiatric classification system
Weegy: The strengths and weaknesses of DSM III and IV are explored. It is argued that DSM IV cannot be assessed in a vacuum, by only examining its successes and failures at accomplishing its goals. [ Accurate descriptions and definitions of syndromes are an important guidepost. This job has generally been done well, especially given the expectation that it will be reevaluated and rewritten often, so that future versions will improve upon shortcomings. Nevertheless, a critique of DSM IV must also address the uses it has been put to, including ways that it can be, and is, being misused. DSM IVs principles are sound. Scientific investigation is unrivaled as the way to eventually understand clinical phenomena. But, clinical work is not a laboratory. If we were to limit our decisions to scientifically proven information we would be incapacitated, since scientifically valid answers oftentimes do not, as yet, exist. Questions are raised as to whether, when this happens, DSM IV too often is used to create an illusion of understanding, for example, obedience to protocols deemed proper treatment by a polling of “experts”, but not based on scientific discovery. Equally questionable is the use of DSM IV to dictate “evidence based” treatment, which implies unwarranted scientific validity. Given the choice between what is understood and proven through scientific method and what is, in essence , opinion or formulation, science should command absolute loyalty. But that doesn’t mean that using a scientific format, or waving its banner, adds validity to those who speak as “scientists.” Its virtues can act as a smokescreen. The language, the prestige, the trappings of science can be so distracting that science’s core value is overshadowed, absolute clarity about what is known and not known. ] (More)
