Copyright problems with diagnostic criteria[edit]

The American Psychiatric Association has not released its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders into public domain, but claims copyright. The Wikimedia Foundation has received a letter of complaint (Ticket:2010030910040817, for those with access) about the use of their diagnostic criteria in this and a number of other articles. Currently, this content is blanked pending investigation, which will last approximately one week. Please feel free to provide input at the copyright problems board listing during that time. Individuals with access to the books would be particularly welcome in helping to conduct the investigation. Assistance developing a plan to prevent misuse of the APA's material on Wikipedia projects would also be welcome. Thank you. Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:20, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

I removed a sentence in the introduction which included the following: "[R]ecent research has shown it to be a distinct and valid diagnosis." Where this sentence used to be, I have included the following: "Some researchers argue that depressive personality disorder is sufficiently distinct from these other conditions so as to warrant a separate diagnosis." I think this more closely follows Wikipedia's NPOV guidelines. Moonharpoon (talk) 10:43, 24 February 2011 (UTC)moonharpoon

Cluster C[edit]

The section "Changes to Cluster C" no longer makes sense, since the accompanying diagram appears to have been deleted. Either the diagram should be replaced, or the section rewritten. --Kramer Associates (talk) 18:36, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

General (Unsourced Material)[edit]

Comments relating to the Axis 1 table are being automatically and instantaneously deleted, calling into question the objectivity of the entire page. The Axis 1 table is cryptically labled, undefined, not specifically sourced, not specifically referenced, abbreviations not defined, and conclusions absent. This table does not appear to be a result of peer-reviewed published research and thus does not qualify as anything more than unsubstantiated opinion. (no signature)

I agree. The table is unsourced, "pa" is not clear for general audiences, and it isn't clear how the values in the table relate to the text in all cases. I have added CN's to the table and the preceding study which is also unsourced, and a refimprove tag to highlight the problem. TricksterWolf (talk) 16:21, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
