MOL focusses on the distress underlying any particular symptom pattern rather than the symptoms themselves

Reliability is not the problem for the DSM

I’ve just posted Part 2 of the 5-part DSM series on my In Control blog on Psychology Today. You can find it here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/in-control/201909/the-red-herring-diagnostic-reliability In this article, I explain why reliability is not the main problem for the DSM. More importantly, I explain why improving reliability will never tell us what we want to know. We do need to accurately understand mental health and mental health problems but the DSM will not help us in that regard.
