Limitations of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

Posted on:3/24/2006
The DSM is intended for use by mental health professionals, and for use in research and administration.



The DSM is intended for use by mental health professionals, and for use in research and administration. Appropriate use of the diagnostic criteria is said to require clinical training, and its contents "cannot simply be applied in a cookbook fashion". APA notes that diagnostic labels are primarily for use as a "convenient shorthand" among professionals for the same symptoms. Further, people sharing the same diagnosis/label may not have the same etiology (cause), or require the same treatment (the DSM contains no information on treatment or cause for this reason). The range and breadth of the DSM represents an extensive scope. Impotence, premature ejaculation, jet lag, caffeine addiction, and bruxism are examples of surprising inclusions and are but only several that non-psychiatrists might not consider to be mental illnesses.
