• Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders is the classification system compiled by
the American Psychiatric Association.
• This is the most widely used classification system all over the world.

which view is most better?

first view is better because through DSM researchers research the patient and in the way help the patient easily ...right

yes zoya you are right, because it helps to cure the patient in a way that is not possible by normal doctor or madicins. 

A psychologist is talking about a specific disorder to a psychiatrist than using the DSM that psychologist can refer to the manual and both professionals will know what problem is being addressed. Moreover, the DSM allows psychologists and psychiatrists to come up with a fluid and harmonizes treatment plan for the mental disorder that a patient is diagnosed with. Not only are there benefits in patient care and treatment but there is a major legal benefit as well.

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a widely accepted classification system throughout the world. Two opposing views exist for DSM: first is that it provides help in diagnosing mental disorders. Second is that it strongly labels individuals with terms that shatter their social identities as human beings. Which view point do you agree with? Support your stance with logical reasoning and daily life examples.

I agree on the point that DSM is very helpful and useful for the diagnosing mental disorders and helping the individuals for their betterment.

As we know that whenever we buy some mechanical or electrical appliances etc. for our daily routine life use, there are some instructional and repair manuals provide with these appliances. If some fault occurs, we send that appliance to the mechanic/technician. First of all he/she inquires us about the manual of that particular manual. By consulting that manual he isolates the fault and repairs it.

This actually the same case with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Man himself is a very complex creation of almighty. From the ancient ages research and cognition started about the human body, different functions of different organs and different bodily systems. Brain, nervous system and functions /complexity and mental disorders and their treatments were also the major focusing points at that time. (Like trephining was performed half a million years ago).

As the developments occurred there was a need of a comprehensive system for classification, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders and research purposes.

In my opinion following are the major advantages of DSM.

  • With the help of DSM one can judge himself or somebody else that he/she is affected by some mental disorder or not.
  • DSM is a systematic, comprehensive and informative manual in which more than 200 definitions of mental disorders, 17 categories, 05 axes are available. It encourages the correct diagnoses and best treatment of that particular mental disorder.
  • It encourages further research and developments which is helpful for the future of the field.
  • All the information regarding the mentally disorder people kept secret from the others (only known by a few closed one). So there is no danger of being socially alone.
