> Dont throw your bible in the trash though and dont confuse DSM with it. The classifications are far from perfect.

Very few things made by man are perfect.

What are your main criticisms of the DSM-5?

Can you give some examples of how you would improve the DSM-5?

It is a mammoth project to create a manual that is capable of differentiating between all of the described mental illnesses that present with psychosis.

I have read short pieces of the DSM-5, and found it to be monumentally better than the DSM-3. I expect that better methods of differentiating between two identical clinical presentations that result from two disparate etiologies will arrive at some point. But the DSM might not be ready for the book-burning pile so soon. It might be quite awhile before we see the creation of behavioral / biological diagnostic matrices that combine clinical observation with standardized biological measurements. Hopefully, this will produce a more exacting guideline for treatment choices.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
