(From Robert M. Gordon – Please direct questions about the methodology, acknowledgments for participation including possible co-authorship to: Robert M. Gordon, rmgordonphd@rcn.com)

 

I need contact information of doctoral programs that teach any or all: DSM, ICD, PDM. Any faculty or graduate student can contact me. We will offer acknowledgements to anyone who helps gets respondents. There may be a possibility for co-authorship for collecting data from 20 or more respondents.

Looking For Psychologists and Psychology Graduates Students to Participate In an International Research Study on Diagnoses and Ethics

Goals:
1. To compare Italian with US raters of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Prototypes (PDP) (Francesco Gazzillo, Vittorio LIngiardi & Franco Del Corno) and the Psychodiagnostic Chart (PDC) (Robert Gordon and Robert Bornstein)

2. To assess how these instruments may help in treatment formulation and better inform about possible high-risk patients that may present ethical problems.

Participants:
Any mental health professional or graduate psychology student who is able to give a DSM or ICD or PDM diagnosis may participate.

Task:
Think of a patient that you have seen recently (in the past week) that you know well enough to diagnose. Then complete the PDP, PDC and a brief treatment questionnaire. This can be done in 20-30 minutes.

Benefits and Ethical Concerns:
There are no foreseeable concerns about negative effects. Patients’ names or identifying data will not be used. This study may be used for operationalizing a psychodynamic diagnostic system. The participant is likely to learn to better diagnose personality structure and disorders.
