Debates about what is and what is not a personality disorder as well as what separates one personality disorder from the next have garnered interest since antiquity.

A revision to the categorical model was proposed in the DSM Credit should be given though for an effort at a great compromise. Per experts in assessment, internal conflicts and dynamics were viewed as obstacles in the quest for perfection in reliability. Trends towards parsimony and reliability in operational definitions led to some mangling of classic personality disorders. Schizoid personality disorder is one of the paradigmatic examples of a prominent PD that since the DSM-III became increasingly mangled and merged, with calls for it to become missing completely in the DSM Other "pure" personality disorder types, such as dependent personality disorder, paranoid personality disorder, avoidant personality disorder , and narcissistic personality disorder were also defined with an eye towards maximizing internal consistency over clinical reality.
Low prevalence rates paved the way for a lack of academic research attention which in turn led to proposals for their removal. Currently, once widely recognized personality diagnoses now have little resemblance to personality disorders encountered in clinical practice or research. Individuals rarely meet diagnostic criteria for PDs when definitions are mangled through reductionism. Thus, as is particularly true for schizoid PD , mangled PDs have very low prevalence rates, undermining recruitment and, therefore, research. A Note to Readers: I hope you will stay tuned for just how the personality disorders described in this post have changed and for the latest, breaking research on personality disorder diagnosis and related topics.
Also ok if your data is expressed in x per , adults etc. That would really help to get an understanding of how relevant it is. Hi there, Thank you for your comment. Prevalence rates often vary depending on the sample and measures used. But, Fossati, Maffei, Bagnato et al.
The DSM-5 reports dependent PD prevalence from large scale epidemiological data sorry I don't know N off the top of my of head to be 0. Histrionic PD is quoted at 1. I'll get back to you with more.. Really appreciate the data. Gives an order of magnitude. Other thing that strikes me as you allude to as well is how big some of the ranges are. I think its a fundamental flaw with psychiatry today still not in the field, just a relatively or semi-knowledgeable lay person is that its is so incredibly subjective vs almost all other medicine and science.
I won't go as far as to say its almost like philosophy, but it does seem quite whimsical. Again, this site has run numerous articles about the divide, especially with the recent series on childhood mental illness and all the pro and anti-psychiatry industries on both sides. I read this in a statement released by Dr. The idea is to replace the DSM with more logical, rational, scientifically-based and statistically-proven standards of diagnosis and treatment that are organized more on the medical model, so that there will be much less guess-work and much more hard data to guide the diagnosis and treatment of those with mental disorders.
I applaud any efforts to drag psychiatry into the 21st Century and make the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders as accurate, scientifically valid, and as effective as medical diagnoses and treatments are now. Thank you for your comment. I was aware of the push towards funding underlying domains of psychopathology versus DSM categories but didn't know it was to that extent. I agree the RDoC is definitely the way forward.

Domains or dimensions that cut across multiple diagnoses are ideal for translational research. In terms of identifying the domains related to cluster A plus avoidant PD, the 20th century specifically Meehls sensitivity and anhedonia offer many prospects for 21st century research. Best, D.
