  • The Home of Dr. Dean Given

Registration is closed


In this salon, Dr. Broderick  will review how the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (PDM) 2 can enhance diagnostic understanding when integrated with the DSM 5 and ICD-10. He will review the history of the development of the PDM in the context of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (PDM) providing a diagnostic framework that describes both the deeper and surface levels of an individual's personality, emotional and social functioning, and symptom patterns.

The PDM was first developed in 2006 in collaboration with the American Psychoanalytic Association, the American/International Psychoanalytic Association, Division 39 of the APA, and various other depth-oriented associations. It was revised with the recent publication of the second edition in 2017.

The PDM is developed from both classical and relational psychoanalytic traditions. The PDM is not symptom oriented - it provides clinicians ways to describe and categorize personality patterns, related social and emotional capacities, unique mental profiles and personal experiences.

The PDM is intended to augment the DSM 5 and ICD-10 the existing diagnostic taxonomies by providing a multi dimensional approach to the intricacies of a client’s overall functioning with the goal to further enhance clinical assessment and to make treatment planning more effective.

A clinical case will provide a concrete example of an integrated Clinical Evaluation utilizing the DSM 5, ICD-10 and the PDM 2 for assessment and treatment planning purposes.


Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to:

1.  Understand the clinical rationale for the development of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual 2.

2.  List some changes psychologists can make to improve their current assessment and treatment skills.

3.  List some advantages for clients of integrating the PDM 2 with the DSM 5 and ICD-10 in developing a more effective Treatment Plan.
