To the DSM-5 User Community: When the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was released at the American Psychiatric Association’s Annual Meeting in May 2013, it marked the end of more than a decade’s journey in revising the criteria for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders. Although DSM-5 is now complete, a great deal of work remains, and we are hopeful that once again you will play an active role in this next important phase of refining the manual. Our highest priority is ensuring the proper use of DSM-5, including providing training materials; answering questions about its implementation in clinical care and research; clarifying concerns about the new ICD codes and insurance billing; and correcting any errors. Information about DSM-5’s developmental history, including Task Force and Work Group membership and relevant resource documents, will also continue to be maintained here.

Dealing with BPD in an Employee or Coworker - Borderline Personality Disorder In 2000 a survey of the top Fortune 1000 found that every work day, 723 workers are physically attacked, 43,800 are harassed and 16,400 threatening incidents take place. These events are brought about by a difficult employee’s personality. A recent article published in the Journal of Business and Economics Research found borderline traits to be in the top three most difficult employee traits for managers and coworkers. A better understanding of personality disorders and their underlying psychological characteristics can help managers, supervisors and co-workers to better handle a difficult employee. Personality disorders can have a negative impact on the workplace. An estimated 10 million Americans have borderline personality disorder (BPD) and its symptoms can be disruptive in a working environment.

DSM-5: The Ten Personality Disorders: Cluster A - Personality Disorders Simone Hoermann, Ph.D., Corinne E. Zupanick, Psy.D. & Mark Dombeck, Ph.D. We have previously reviewed the four defining features of personality disorders. These are: 1) Distorted thinking patterns, 2) Problematic emotional responses, 3) Over- or under-regulated impulse control, and 4) Interpersonal difficulties. These four core features are common to all personality disorders. Psychology Psychology is an academic and applied discipline that involves the scientific study of mental functions and behaviors.[1][2] Psychology has the immediate goal of understanding individuals and groups by both establishing general principles and researching specific cases,[3][4] and by many accounts it ultimately aims to benefit society.[5][6] In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist and can be classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors. While psychological knowledge is often applied to the assessment and treatment of mental health problems, it is also directed towards understanding and solving problems in many different spheres of human activity.
