PDM-2 Introduction Workshop
PDM-2 Introduction Workshop
This workshop will introduce you to the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (PDM-2) and its utility in the diagnosis of personality related issues underlying our clients presenting concerns.  During the session, we will further focus on the treatment planning arising out of the diagnoses.
 
The PDM2 is useful to all practitioners who are looking to gain a deeper understanding of the cognitive, emotional/affective, relational and intrapsychic patterns associated with our clients’ distress.

PSYCHODYNAMIC DIAGNOSTIC MANUAL (PDM-2) SECOND EDITION

Edited by Vittorio Lingiardi, PhD and Nancy McWilliams, PhD

Now completely revised (over 90% new), this is the authoritative diagnostic manual grounded in psychodynamic clinical models and theories. Explicitly oriented toward case formulation and treatment planning, PDM-2 offers practitioners an empirically based, clinically useful alternative or supplement to DSM and ICD categorical diagnoses. Leading international authorities systematically address personality functioning and psychological problems of infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age, including clear conceptualizations and illustrative case examples.

Purchasers get access to a companion website where they can download and print five reproducible PDM-derived rating scales in a convenient 81⁄2" x 11" size. The website also features additional case illustrations and assessment resources.

Sponsoring associations include the International Psychoanalytical Association, Division 39 of the American Psychological Association, and the American Psychoanalytic Association.

New to This Edition

- Significant revisions to all chapters, reflecting a decade of clinical, empirical, and methodological advances.
- Chapter with extended case illustrations, including complete PDM profiles.
- Separate section on older adults (the first classification system with a geriatric section).
- Extensive treatment of psychotic conditions and the psychotic level of personality organization.
- Greater attention to issues of culture and diversity, and to both the clinician's and patient's subjectivity.
- Chapter on recommended assessment instruments, plus reproducible/downloadable diagnostic tools.
- Comparisons to DSM-5 and ICD-10-CM throughout.

Critical Acclaim

“PDM finally has given clinicians—as well as researchers and theorists—an alternative to DSM, which is largely based on symptom counting. As the editors state, PDM provides a ‘taxonomy of people’ rather than a ‘taxonomy of disorders.’ While the first edition was a monumental achievement, the second edition is even more impressive. It is an invaluable resource not only for diagnostic purposes, but also for teaching and research. I recommend this book to anyone—psychologist, psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, social worker, or educator— interested in an ecologically valid way of assessing personality and mental functioning.”
—Morris N. Eagle, PhD, ABPP

“People are more than their diagnoses. Diagnostic formulations rooted in the diversity and humanity of the people we aim to help and, at the same time, rooted in carefully evaluated empirical evidence represent the real gold standard in our field. This synthesis is precisely what PDM-2 aims for. The book will be of value both to practicing clinicians and to those teaching the next generation to think in ways that combine rigor with empathy for the client's experience.” —Paul L. Wachtel, PhD
