Before, the DSM 4 used a 5-Axis diagnosis to address the whole person (DSM-IV-TR Multiaxial Diagnosis and the DSM-5 Single Axis Diagnosis [PowerPoint PDF], 2013). Today, the DSM 5 uses the single axis approach (DSM-IV-TR Multiaxial Diagnosis and the DSM-5 Single Axis Diagnosis [PowerPoint PDF], 2013). In my opinion, the single axis approach is favorable because there is no separation of personality disorders (DSM-IV-TR Multiaxial Diagnosis and the DSM-5 Single Axis Diagnosis [PowerPoint PDF], 2013). “No separation of personality disorders” means: no misguided belief that these disorders were largely untreatable and medical conditions can be listed side-by-side with the mental disorder (DSM-IV-TR Multiaxial Diagnosis and the DSM-5 Single Axis …show more content…

Also, if patients did leave, they weren’t prepaid for the outside world (Britt & Christenfeld, 2007). Today, it’s the opposite, it’s hard to get in the psychiatric center, but it is easy to leave (Britt & Christenfeld, 2007). The only way a person could be committed to a psychiatric center is when several psychiatrists are required to sign as proof that the individual is a danger to others and themselves (Britt & Christenfeld, 2007).
