One of the major changes in the DSM-5 was that the multiaxial system has been eliminated. In opposition to this change, in Chapter 13 Juan Mezzich and Ihsan Salloum argue that the 19 20 Introduction: The concept of validation in psychiatry and psychology multiaxial model was itself too narrow. Valid case conceptualization can only be achieved in a widening of diagnostic scope. Their proposed widening is termed Person-centered Integrative Diagnosis. The conceptual foundation of this more comprehensive approach is that of person-centered medicine, a holistic model that rejects the assumption that one can understand the nature of a disorder independently of the person who has the disorder.

Later editions, including the DSM-5, still benefit from the credibility of the DSM-III. The neopositivist operational diagnostic criteria. Preceded by the Feighner criteria, the introduction of operational diagnostic criteria was the major innovation of the DSM-III. Although the DSM-II had already claimed to use operational definitions, the DSM-III abandoned the classical prototypical descriptions of the psychopathological syndromes in favor of distinct behavioral criteria. The shift was from general glossary definitions that could apply or not to an individual patient, depending on the clinician’s judgment, to explicit criteria that had to be satisfied in order to make the diagnosis (Aragona 2009a).
