DSM-V Reformulates Cluster B Personality Disorders: Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder

December 2, 2010 Leave a comment

My critique and interpretation critique of the rationale for the reformulation of the Cluster B personality disorders in the yet to be published revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the DSM-V. I compare the new diagnostic system to ordering a vanity beverage at Starbuck’s.
