Justin Karter: Yes. There are serious problems with diagnosis, DSM included. Horrific problems! Yet, it seems to NOT be amendable at this time. On top of the lists of concerns just may be the social problems of our day. Societies are sick, some are not. Science has been explaining this well. We don’t hear, don’t know. The subconscious soots us well, so we think. (Not really). Another thing to consider is how big, gigantic, is the system trying to be changed. The DSM is about money concerns to a larger degree. Be honest. Two words to begin explain this is “insurance companies.” Ultimately, changing the method of diagnosis (the DSM) would involve an enormous collaboration from a much wider viewpoint than imagined. One last thought is that decisions for others, by others, is not going to hold strong all that well, ever. Ask the patient/client. Include them in on decisions. Change is inevitable. The DSM is not the right road. Hard science will change that. Look ‘that’ direction. Keep trying.
