ISEPP denounces DSM-V


by John Freedom, CEHP

The International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry's (ISEPP) has denounced the upcoming DSM-5. Thomas Insel, the director of the National Institutes of Mental Health has announced that the federal agency – which provides grants for research on mental illness – will be "re-orienting its research away from DSM categories." Thomas Insel's statement comes just weeks before the scheduled publication of the DSM-V, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.

Insel writes:

"While DSM has been described as a 'Bible' for the field, it is, at best, a dictionary, creating a set of labels and defining each. The strength of each of the editions of DSM has been 'reliability'– each edition has ensured that clinicians use the same terms in the same ways. The weakness is its lack of validity. Unlike our definitions of ischemic heart disease, lymphoma, or AIDS, the DSM diagnoses are based on a consensus about clusters of clinical symptoms, not any objective laboratory measure. In the rest of medicine, this would be equivalent to creating diagnostic systems based on the nature of chest pain or the quality of fever. Indeed, symptom-based diagnosis, once common in other areas of medicine, has been largely replaced in the past half century as we have understood that symptoms alone rarely indicate the best choice of treatment. Patients with mental disorders deserve better."

Insel said that the NIMH will be replacing the DSM with the "Research Domain Criteria (RDoC)," which define mental disorders based not just on vague symptomology but on more specific genetic, neural and cognitive data. But then, immediately after making this dramatic announcement, Insel added that "we cannot design a system based on biomarkers or cognitive performance because we lack the data."

Insel's statement is also an implicit admission that there is no real theoretical basis for drug treatments for mental illness.

Guilt is not a Requirement

It is difficult to live a life without some form of regret. By the time that you reach adolescence, you probably have developed a substantial list of things you wish you hadn’t said, hadn’t done, or failed to say or do. Then by the time you reach your middle age years or even later in life, that list seems to be almost encyclopedic in size. Furthermore, we often have others – who may think that they are well-meaning – who communicate by telling us that the reason that we need to do or say something is to satisfy others. And, if we don’t, we will be sorry later. Yes, parents, teachers, and...

How to use hypnosis

Most people immediately think of hypnosis as being something involving a stage show. They think of people quacking like a duck or heating and onion or lemon and believing that it is something sweet. However, hypnosis is actually much more than that. When used by a qualified and talented hypnotherapist it can be used for a wide range of mental health, medical, and performance-oriented applications. Therefore, the primary uses of hypnosis are healing the body, healing the mind, and self-actualization. Medical applications of hypnosis include stress management and the direct influence of...

Don’t Let Your Fear of Death Control Your Life

I vividly remember the time that I learned of my mortality. I was probably around four or five years old when I suddenly realized that I was not going to live forever. As I matured and grew older – and having survived a near fatal automobile accident – I decided that I wanted to focus on living rather than constantly working about my demise. Obviously, all of us are aware that life is going to end sometime. However, by choosing to live everyday to its fullest your life can become rich and rewarding.

If death is constantly on your mind, it is time to let these thoughts go....
