Carrie said: I find this diagnostic manual to be reductionistic just like I find the DSM to In 2006, the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (PDM; PDM Task Force, 2006) was published. The PDM was (and is) in many ways a revolutionary document: In contrast to extant diagnostic systems available at that time, the PDM was an unabashedly psychodynamic diagnostic system Now completely revised (over 90 new), this is the authoritative diagnostic manual grounded in psychodynamic clinical models and theories.
