(From Robert M. Gordon – Please direct questions about the methodology, acknowledgments for participation including possible co-authorship to: Robert M. Gordon, email@example.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
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.
Any mental health professional or graduate psychology student who is able to give a DSM or ICD or PDM diagnosis may participate.
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.
