Diagnosis and methodology

Hiller, Wolfgang

Current Opinion in Psychiatry:
Clinical Psychology And Behavioral Medicine

The concepts, definitions and delineations of mental disorders have become much more standardized and uniform worldwide through the development of new classification systems:DSM-IV and ICD-10. The reliability of the diagnostic process has improved by the introduction of a number of well evaluated instruments. New data have been presented for some established scales designed to measure the severity of syndromes, and some new measures have also been developed for specific areas of psychopathology.
