Description

The most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) provides clinicians with a new personality assessment tool, the Personality Inventory for DSM-5. It is one of a number of assessments provided for use “in research and evaluation as potentially useful tools to enhance clinical decision-making…” The PID-5 does not contain validity scales to assist clinicians in assessing personality and making diagnostic decisions. This research project seeks to answer the question, “Can the PID-5 be a useful tool without a set of validity scales provided to assist in the interpretation of results?” A literature review will be followed to document development and use of the MMPI-2 and PID-5, with focus on the use of validity scales.
