The DSM-IV

The DSM-IV is an important tool for clinicians. It provides a standard for diagnoses to be standardized across psychology; however, the DSM-IV is not as precise for diagnosing personality disorders as some psychologists would like.

Give an example of each of the following problems identified in your readings and explain how these problems could negatively affect a diagnosis.
2. Personality disorders can be similar to each other.
3. People with different personalities can be given the same diagnosis

    We do not have access to "your readings," and the problems did not copy and paste. For us to help you with the specific problem, you will need to repost and type it in the post.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
