Présentation de l'éditeur

This 880 page paperback manual is based on current neuroscience and treatment outcome studies that demonstrate the importance of focusing on the full range and depth of emotional and social functioning. Beginning with a classification of the spectrum of personality patterns and disorders found in individuals and then describing a profile of mental functioning that permits a clinician to look in detail at each of the patient's capacities, the entries include a description of the patient's symptoms with a focus on the patient's internal experiences as well as surface behaviors. Intended to expand on the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)and ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) efforts in cataloging the symptoms and behaviors of mental health patients, this manual opens the door to a fuller understanding of the functioning of the mind, brain, and their development.

The Alliance of Psychodynamic Organizations is a collaboration of the major psychoanalytic organizations including the American Psychoanalytic Association, International Psychoanalytical Association, the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological Association, American Academy of Psychoanalysis, and National Membership Committee on Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work.

La livraison a été très longue. J'ai reçu mon livre un mois et une semaine après l'avoir commandé...
J'aurais aussi aimé avoir des nouvelles pour savoir ou était rendu mon colis. Je n'avais aucun moyen de savoir s'il avait été envoyé. Je viens du Canada et communiquer par téléphone avec l'Europe est très dispendieux alors j'aurais aimé avoir la possibilité de suivre mon colis sur internet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Diagnostic Manual With Categories Into Which People Actually Fit 16 juin 2006
Par Peter B. Dunn MD - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Finally the psychoanalytic world has produced a diagnostic manual that describes people in a way that is true to life since it incorporates symptoms, inner experiences and the person's strengths and weaknesses. This book at long last puts into black and white the diagnostic map that analysts have used for the past 30 years, though never as an authorized nosology. The result of the long delay is the sad truth that the DSM has had no competition. Wisely the authors--essentially everyone in field of note who has been interested in questions of diagnosis including Kernberg, Wallerstein, McWilliams and Drew Westen -- present the PDM as complementary to the DSM rather than as a replacement since the DSM is unfortunately too firmly entrenched to be dislodged. However the PDM really boils down to an alternative diagnostic system, which corrects the over-simplifications, some of the omissions and a lot of the implicit biological bias of the DSM. In the correcting-omissions-department the PDM restores some traditional personality types that are very common in office practice - like depressive and masochistic - that were left out of the DSM because politically important factions lobbied against their inclusion. The PDM also has restored 'borderline' to its more usual usage as a level of severity. Still, there are suprises in the PDM. Three new "personality types" are introduced, and without full explanation why. These are the the anxious, the dissociative and the somatizing personalities. Usually anxiety, somatization and dissociation are included as symptoms (which the PDM does as well) but here these pathologies are listed as defining personality types. Since no research data is presented to support these additions, the impression is left that one or more members of the Committee prevailed and had to be assuaged in order to hammer out the final compromise document. But what will be most suprising to people who buy this book -- expecting a diagnostic manual -- is that about half of this 800 page book is not a manual at all but a collection of supportive research articles that are not specifically explications of the PDM's diagnostic system. The articles amount to a high level conversation between the analytic researchers and the makers of the DSM, particularly the Axis II committee. It remains to be seen if the audience for this kind of manual - clinicians overwhelmingly - will be put off by so much of the book being devoted to learned articles not obviously related to "The Manual." I myself would have preferred that these pages had been devoted to a fuller explication of the diagnostic system of the PDM (sometimes described too briefly) and with more case examples, since that would help ensure that different readers apply the criteria in the same way (i.e. the reliability issue). Nonetheless the PDM towers over the DSM and no quibble about shortcomings should obscure that fact. The overall schema is more true to life and more clinically on target and the personality types are better described and in fewer words than those of the DSM. Unlike the DSM you won't need a tool kit from Home Depot to fit someone into a diagnostic category.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Useful and Invaluable Resource for Psychotherapists of Most Clinical Orientations 1 juillet 2006
Par Birgit Wolz, PhD - Publié sur
Format: Broché
When I first learned about the PDM, I was so intrigued about this much needed and exciting alternative to the DSM that I decided to develop a continuing education online course for psychotherapists, which provides a historical context and a systematized summary of the clinically most relevant part of the new manual. In this process I learned to appreciate that, unlike the DSM or the ICD, which focus exclusively on pathology, the PDM includes descriptions of healthy functional patterns and healthy personality. The new manual insists that personality be evaluated first, and symptoms considered as secondary, because symptoms cannot be understood, assessed, or treated in the absence of an understanding of the personality structure of the person who has the symptoms. While the PDM sees it as important to differentiate "personality disorder" from personality per se, the manual does not present a hard-and-fast dividing line between the two, but suggests a continuum of severity. In contrast to the DSM, the psychodynamic manual considers subjective experiences, typical relationship patterns, and ways of engaging in the therapeutic process in the description of a person's overall functioning. For each personality disorder, clinicians learn what transference and countertransference reactions to expect in the clinical hour and what treatment approach to consider. For many diagnoses the possible psychological roots of the client's problems are mentioned. The manual emphasizes that, depending on their evaluation of a client's location on this severity dimension, therapists need to behave with important differences in emphasis, level of activity, explicitness of boundary-setting, frequency of sessions, and other features of technique. It becomes clear that there is a continuum from exploratory to supportive treatment that correlates roughly with the level-of-organization dimension. I believe that the PDM is a useful and invaluable resource for psychotherapists of most clinical orientations.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Psychology grasping the diagnostic nettle 7 février 2007
Par Anthony C. Theuninck - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a bold and accomplished attempt by the psychoanalytic collaborative to produce a diagnostic manual that respects the phenomenological astuteness of the DSM-IV-TR, whilst asssertively departing from it and offering a personality centred nosology for categorising psychological difficulties.

The PDM corrects what has long been the bain of psychologists and psychotherapists, namely, the DSM's prioritising of discreet Axis I disorders over an understanding of how these form a part of a person's overall orientation to self, others and the world. The PDM recognises the personality, both healthy and disordered, (the P Axis) as the basis for understanding psychological problems. It further offers the M Axis, that begins to provide measurable psychodynamic criteria for mental functioning that cuts across personality style. This axis introduces a way of thinking about the developmental (maturational) aspects of our psychology as pivotal to an understanding of psychological disorders. Finally, the PDM in its 3rd S Axis, outlines the Subjective Experience that characterises the typical DSM Axis I-like difficulties. Here the PDM explores affective, cognitive, somatic, and relationship patterns associated with psychological difficulties in a manner evocative of a CBT formulation. In fact, I hope that in future editions, more of the fine cross-sectional formulations that CBT is famous for will find its way into this manual.

Being versed in psychodynamic theory is not a pre-requisite for the use of this manual, although it could help. The PDM has attempted to move beyond and integrate and systematise the divergent streams of knowledge that make up psychodynamic theory today. In addition it has employed understanding from the cognitive and neuropsychological traditions to provide a more descriptive view of the person-in-suffering than the compartmentalised DSM could. That said, the PDM does not attempt to replace the DSM, but functions as a complimentary adjunct, by providing the DSM equivalents of its own categories.

One of the strengths of this manual is that it is full of rich case illustrations. Half the book is also dedicated to the research base for the nosology that opens up and attempts to engage with the fissures in diagnostic thinking that are usually whitewashed in everyday practice.

The true test of the PDM will reside in its application, to find its way into psychological reports and formulations, and for its editorial team to continue its integrative psychological spirit that may stretch beyond specifically psychoanalytically/dynamically derived knowledge. I urge you to take this one on for size. Diagnostic systems are here to stay, we ignore them at our peril, and the PDM is a courageous first attempt to tame the diagnositc beast with the tempering of meaning and astute psychological science.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Forget the DSM! 1 août 2006
Par A. Neumann - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I agree Dunn and Wolz have said it all regarding the PDM. I have only one criticism of this excellent diagnostic volume, that the descriptions of the disorders are too brief. However, its brevity in that regard is instantaneously forgotten when considering it presents mental health from a truly holistic perspective. Any clinician working in the field should have this book!

Dr. Peter B. Dunn summarized this book fantastically in his review. Even upon first skimming the book, I was shocked at how clearly and realistically diagnostic categories are presented (the key word being REALISTICALLY). If you are even simply interested in therapy, this is a book that you must own.
