Document Summary

The first thing you do to see if someone has a problem is to identify it: a problem that the person has that"s a significant problem. We all have psychological problems, but these problems are significant enough to be treated it interferes with our daily living and relationships with other people. The first part of this processes is assessment. Once you"re diagnosed with something psychologically, it will stick with you. These disorders go away, but sometimes they also come back: even when they aren"t exhibiting symptoms, the label sticks with you though & that could be harmful, the label can be stigmatizing. This means that you specifically and precisely say what the symptoms are. But there is a problem with that: not every occurrence of the same disorder looks the same. Dsm does a good job of this. The symptoms for one disorder may also be sympoms in another disorder: the categories actually do exist.
