Ayur-Veda: System of medicine in ancient India
Disorders were grouped based on 7 kinds of demonic possession * Sources: First, Frances, & Pincus, 2004 1400 B.C Before the DSM: Classification in the Ancient World : HIPPOCRATES First to place psychiatric conditions within the secular and naturalistic domain of medicine. He identified 6 conditions: Before the DSM: Classification in the Ancient World 460-377 B.C. (1) Phrenitis (2) Mania (3) Scythian disease Provided what amounted to a 2nd diagnostic axis (4) Epilepsy (5) Hysteria (6) Melancholia Before the DSM: Classification in the Ancient World : * Sources: First et al., 2004 Before the DSM: Classification in the Ancient World He noted 4 temperaments: (1) Choleric (2) Melancholic Similar to “personality traits” (3) Sanguine (4) Phlegmatic Slide 7: Over the next 10 centuries, Hippocrates’ list of 6 conditions was extended & further differentiated. Two approaches: Hippocratic observation and empiricism Platonic rationalistic search for universal causes - vs. - Culminated in classification proposed by Paul of Aegina (624-700 AD) Before the DSM: Classification Until the 15th Century Slide 8: Sydenham (“father of modern medical thinking”) rejected the notion that a single dysfunction was the root of all problems. Instead, he hypothesized that each disease had an individual existence with a uniform presentation in different individuals. * Sources: First et al., 2004 Before the DSM: Classification Until the 15th Century 15th Century Sydenham Slide 9: He proposed that diseases should be observed & classified in the same way that botany was beginning to classify plants (i.e. system proposed by Boissier de Sauvages in which he classified 2,400 species of diseases) * Sources: First et al., 2004 Before the DSM: Classification Until the 15th Century Slide 10: Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries Movement towards a more simplified system A less systematic, more clinical approach to classification emerged Boissier nosology was seen as complex & impractical Practical “rule of thumb” lists focusing on relevant clinical types Key Individuals: Philippe Pinel, Jean-Dominque
Esquirol 18th Century Slide 11: Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries Movement towards organic etiologies Key Individuals: Benedict Morel, Paul Broca, & William Griersinger 18th & 19th Century Slide 12: Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries * Sources: First et al., 2004; Gaines, 1992; Malik & Beutler, 2002 Initial attempts at formal psychiatric classification “Idiocy and Insanity”- Label given to individuals who were considered by health professionals to have mental illnesses. “Normals” - Identified all other individuals 5 additional categories 1840-US Census 1880- Govt. Re-Classified System Slide 13: German clinical/experimental psychiatrist Synthesized classification approaches from late 19th century Compiled disorders in Compendium der Psychiatrie (1883): 9 editions in 40 yrs. Studied with Wundt: Conducted pharmacological experiments Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries 1856-1926 EMIL KRAEPELIN Slide 14: The structure of his classification system formed the basis for current psychiatric nosologies such as the DSM In his books, he argued that psychiatry was a branch of medical science & should be investigated by observation/experimentation He believed that all mental illness had an organic cause * Sources: Alic, 2001; First et al., 2004; Müller, Fletcher, & Steinberg, 2006 Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries Slide 15: Swiss neuropathologist, psychiatrist, & professor 1892 - Emigrated to the United States Largely responsible for the introduction & dissemination of Kraepelin’s classification in the US. Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries ADOLF MEYER 1866-1950 Slide 16: Embraced Kraeplin’s emphasis on prognosis for its applicability to treatment; however, he had scientific concerns regarding the: Generalizability from large groups of cases to the individual. Establishment of disease entities in the absence of empirical support Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries Slide 17: * Sources: First et al., 2004 He eventually proposed his own classification system Based on the notion of reaction types Disorders viewed as pathological reactions of the individual to environmental stressors. Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries Slide 18: Other influences on classification: Bleuler: Combined Kraepelin & Meyerian approaches Freud: Classified neurosis (anxiety, depressive, hysterical, obsessive-compulsive) Health Records: Asylums began developing their own classification systems intended primarily for the purpose of keeping statistics on their patients. Before the DSM: Classification in the 18th & 19th Centuries Slide 19: Committee on Statistics of the American Medico-Psychological (became the American Psychiatric Association [APA] in 1921) was founded by a group of medical doctors.

Houts, 2000; Widiger, 2004; Wilson & Skodol, 1994 6th edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-6) Propelled the APA Committee on Nomenclature to develop an alternative to the ICD-6 for use in the US 1948 Before the DSM: Classification in the 20th Century Slide 24: The Creation & Emergence of the DSM APA Committee on Nomenclature produced 1st draft of the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) First edition of the DSM (DSM-I) was published 1950 1952 Slide 25: The Creation & Emergence of the DSM Heavily reflected psychodynamic thought 106 diagnoses - Characterized primarily as reactions to psychological, social, and biological factors * Sources: Gaines, 1992; Houts, 2000, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Malik & Beutler, 2002; Mayes & Horwitz, 2005; Rentoul, 1995; Widiger, 2004; Wilson & Skodol, 1994 Ironically, despite the lack of initial attention paid to Medical 203, the DSM-I was heavily influenced by the document Many of the passages were virtually identical to Medical 203 Slide 26: Rationale for DSM-II Beginning Revisions: DSM-II The first official changes were made to DSM 1968 Continued to reflect the influence of psychoanalysis & Medical 203 Published Edition DSM and DSM-II were strikingly similar to one another Symptoms conceptualized as reflecting underlying, internal conflicts To conform to the system used in the ICD Slide 27: Beginning Revisions: DSM-II Meyer & Menninger significantly shaped the creation of both editions * Sources: Gaines, 1992; Houts, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Malik & Beutler, 2002; Mayes & Horwitz, 2005 In response to critics: removed “reaction”/“reactive” Changes Number of diagnoses: from 106 to 182 Influences Views of dominant 20th century psychiatrists & psychoanalysts Slide 28: The third edition of the DSM (DSM-III) is published 1980 Published Edition In response to critics: attempts at a “data-driven” DSM Changes Number of diagnoses: from 182 to 265 diagnoses Reflected a shift from a theoretical paradigm to a “medical model” To retain conformity with the newest ICD The Beginning of the DSM Controversies: DSM-III Rationale for DSM-III Multi axial system - Focused on symptoms rather than causes Slide 29: * Sources: Gaines, 1992; Houts, 2000; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Mayes & Horwitz, 2005; Rogler, 1997; Widiger, 2004 Influences 1970’s: Ongoing struggle for power within the professional field The Beginning of the DSM Controversies: DSM-III Psychiatrists wanted the profession to be more scientifically-oriented Increased power of neo-Kraeplinian, research-oriented psychiatrists who felt the psychodynamic orientation to be unscientific Slide 30: Professional & Political Controversies: DSM-III Task Force: Chose professionals primarily committed to medically-oriented research - Mostly white male senior psychiatrists ROBERT SPITZER: Chair of DSM -III Task Force Intended to delete neurosis: felt had no empirical basis “Neurosis” Controversy Due to opposition from psychodynamic psychiatrists, APA Board of Trustees threatened not to publish DSM-III unless neurosis was included Task force reinserted “neurosis” back before final draft was published Slide 31: Professional & Political Controversies: DSM-III Homosexuality as a Mental Illness As chairman, Spitzer was influential in the decision to retain a diagnosis for homosexuals experiencing distress over their sexual orientation * Sources: Houts, 2000; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Mayes & Horwitz, 2005; Rogler, 1997 After protests, homosexuality was removed by vote (1974, 7th printing of DSM-II) Thus, the diagnosis of ego-dystonic homosexuality appeared in DSM-III Slide 32: Political & Economic Controversies: DSM-III Late 1960’s: Standard practice of medical insurance companies to request a DSM diagnosis before reimbursement will be made Landmark case (1980): U.S. Court of Appeals ruled against Blue Shield for refusal to pay clinical psychologists unless billed through a physician. Blue Shield reps pleaded with Spitzer to standardize DSM-III so insurers could separate “legitimate” mental illnesses from non-psychiatric problems * Sources: Albee & Joffee, 2004; Gaines, 1992; Houts, 2000; Mayes & Horwitz, 2005; Rogler, 1997; Zur & Nordmarker, 2006 Managed Healthcare Slide 33: Political & Economic Controversies: DSM-III Only after a 10 yr. political campaign of vets & a few psychiatrists did war-related stress reactions become recognized in the DSM-III. Managed Healthcare & PTSD Vietnam War: Vets often denied psychological services because insurers would not reimburse for problems that did not have a DSM diagnosis * Sources: Albee & Joffee, 2004; Gaines, 1992; Houts, 2000; Mayes & Horwitz, 2005; Rogler, 1997; Zur & Nordmarker, 2006 Despite claims that DSM-III was data-driven, empirical literature was not the primary point of contention in deciding the fate of PTSD . . . Slide 34: The third edition-revised of the DSM (DSM-III) is published 1987 Published Edition To increase reliability & validity More Revisions: DSM-III-R Robert Spizter & task force begin working on revisions 1983 While revisions were intended to be few, several diagnostic categories were renamed/reorganized, & significant changes made to diagnostic criteria. Rationale for DSM-III Slide 35: * Sources: Gaines, 1995; Houts, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Malik & Beutler, 2002; Rentoul, 1995; Widiger, 2004 In response to critics: renamed & re-organized Changes Number of diagnoses: from 265 to 292 diagnoses Influences Robert Spitzer & DSM task force More Revisions: DSM-III-R External pressure from various sources Slide 36: Sleep Disorders (listed in the appendix of DSM-III ): Promoted to mental disorders in DSM-III-R based on a vote not results from new research Despite force’s insistence of a scientific basis, they were placed in a new appendix, “Proposed Diagnostic Categories in Need of Further Study” More Controversies: DSM-III-R Lack of Empirical Data 27 new diagnoses: Drastic increase in # of diagnoses b/t DSM III & DSM-III-R was much larger than could be explained by research literature Slide 37: * Sources: Gaines, 1995; Houts, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Spitzer, 1981 as cited by Rogler, 1997 Spitzer admits that homosexuality was not included or removed from DSM-III-R on empirical grounds, but became an issue based on inherent heterosexual biases More Controversies: DSM-III-R Resulted in removal of paraphilic rapism, self-defeating personality disorder, & premenstrual dysphoric disorder Political & Social Pressures Confrontations with feminists Removal of “ego dystonic homosexuality” Slide 38: The fourth edition of the DSM (DSM-IV) is published 1994 Published Edition Changes Number of diagnoses: from 292 to 365 diagnoses A Major Change: DSM-IV Work on DSM-IV began a year after DSM-III-R 1988 Detailed system of diagnostic criteria, change to Axis IV To retain conformity with ICD-10 Rationale for DSM-IV Slide 39: * Sources: Frances & Egger, 1997; Houts, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Malik & Beutler, 2002; Widiger, 2004 A Major Change: DSM-IV Effort to include women, minorities, psychologists & social workers Appointed Allen Frances as the new chairman Established a task force of several hundred mental health professionals Sought to adhere to a more rigid empirical approach Stated primary objective of the was to move beyond expert consensus In response to critics significant changes to the revision process itself Slide 40: Influences Motivating Change: DSM-IV & DSM IV-TR While APA stated that new diagnoses had to meet rigorous scientific tests for inclusion in DSM-IV, most were carried over from earlier editions APA admitted that most of them did not meet the new standards A few years after publication, announcement to revise the text was made 2000 Fourth edition-revised of the DSM (DSM-IV-TR) is published Currently translated in 22 languages Slide 41: Influences Motivating Change: DSM-IV & DSM IV-TR * Sources: Houts, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995 Published Edition Changes Number of diagnoses: 365(no diagnoses added) The 50-page increase from the DSM-IV reflected an effort to include the growth that occurred in research knowledge Cultural, ethnic, & age group variation sand new lab and physical findings were Added In response to critics Slide 42: Understanding 50 Years of Change DSM-II: 182 disorders DSM-IV: 365 disorders 494 pages 134 pages 567 pages DSM-III: 265 disorders DSM-III-R: 265 disorders DSM-IV-TR: 365 disorders 886 pages 943 pages In 50 years: 800% increase in the number of diagnoses Slide 43: Understanding 50 Years of Change * Sources: Houts, 2000, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Zur & Nordmarker, 2006 The large increase in diagnoses (particularly in the last 30 years) and poor reliability & validity of DSM-based research has attracted much criticism Argued that the increase in scientific knowledge cannot explain expansion Criticism Slide 44: Understanding 50 Years of Change * Sources: Houts, 2000, 2002; Kutchins & Kirk, 1995; Zur & Nordmarker, 2006 Included only in Appendix of DSM-IV

This improvement has facilitated research and clinical communication” (1999, p. 164) Frances [DSM-IV chair] & Egger [DSM Research Fellow] on DSM-IV Slide 81: “…as a text, [the DSM] is a simple collection of tales of suffering and complaint, a compilation of information (by its own admission) often transient and mutable quality” (Amundson, 1998, p. 3). Thoughts Regarding the DSM-V A Criticism From the Field “… For some of these, there is an issue of grandfathering...The onus is on the person who wants to change it to prove that we should do so” (from Time magazine’s “How we get labeled,” Cloud, 2003). A Comment from Michael First [DSM-IV editor & chair of DSM-V] Slide 82: Advice Regarding the DSM-V “DSM-IV and ICD-10 are very similar, but annoyingly different—and neither is clearly superior to the other. ICD-11 has been postponed until at least 2014.” Frances A.[DSM-IV chair] (Frances A. Advice To DSM V. . . change deadlines and text, keep criteria stable. Available athttp://www.psychiatrictimes.com/display/article/10168/1444633. Accessed August 31, 2009.). Slide 83: Advice Regarding the DSM-V “If, as seems necessary, the DSM-V publication date is postponed for a year or more, there will be sufficient time to join the systems in a nested alignment. This would be the most welcome and enduring legacy of both DSM-V and ICD-11”

Frances A.[DSM-IV chair] Slide 84: Warning Regarding the DSM-V “I have little confidence that the DSM-V leadership will do the kind of careful risk-benefit analysis of each proposed change that is necessary to avoid damaging unintended consequences. My concerns arise from the following:
Their ambition to achieve a paradigm shift when there is no scientific basis for one. Francs A. [DSM-IV chair] Regarding DSM-V leadership Slide 85: Warning Regarding the DSM-V Their failure to provide clear methodological guidelines on the level of empirical support required for
Their lack of openness to wide scrutiny and useful criticism. Francs A. [DSM-IV chair] Regarding DSM-V leadership Slide 86: Warning Regarding the DSM-V Their inability to spot the obvious dangers in most of their current proposals.
Their failure to set and meet clear timelines.
The likelihood that time pressure will soon lead to an unconsidered rush of last-minute decisions.”
