A psychiatrist writes in the Psychiatric Times, “While the diagnostic categories of DSM-III and DSM-IV (and soon DSM-5) have provided the basis for much useful research, little has been written about how much of DSM — and how much ‘evidence-based medicine’ — is built on a foundation of fantasy.”
No wonder. The author is a psychoanalyst.
“Dr Blum is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in private practice in Philadelphia. He is on the faculty of the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia and is Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania.”
