A significant proposed change to the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) that will significantly affect the way counselors diagnose mental disorders is the addition of dimensional assessments to the categorical diagnoses. The author reviews the current DSM's (4th ed., text rev.; American Psychiatric Association, 2000) categorical classification system, describes the proposed dimensional and cross-cutting assessments, and provides implications about clinical utility and user acceptability of a dimensional diagnostic approach.
