Discussing Restructuring in Upcoming DSM-V as Indication of Major Paradigm Shift in Field of Psychiatry

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Claudia C…


Claudia: That is good article!

Narcissistic Disorder to be Eliminated in Diagnostic Manual:

Rayn: Hmmm… This will be happening in 2013. Meanwhile, the DSM will be doing the same thing to Asperger’s Syndrome in 2012.

A Powerful Identity, A Vanishing Diagnosis:

With all of this restructuring taking place, it would appear that there is a major paradigm shift underway in the field of psychiatry. I wonder which corporate agenda is being served this time… Probably the pharmaceutical industry, again…

Claudia C.: it seems that the only entity benefiting from these changes are indeed the pharmaceutical companies who are not capable to admit that the drugs they are producing are not safe. If they have an altered dsm to this point they can easily claim that the drugs are efficient as opposed to dangerous and inadequate.
