The workgroup recommending changes to the DSM-5, due out in 2013, has proposed that narcissistic personality disorder along with 4 other personality disorders be eliminated from the new edition. Narcissism itself isn't being eliminated (too bad) but the change reflects an emphasis in the DSM-5 on the "dimensional approach" to diagnosing personality disorders. The four other personality disorders being eliminated are Paranoid, Schizoid, Histrionic and Dependent Personality Disorders. (Schizotypal, Antisocial, Borderline, Avoidant and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorders will remain in the new revision.) Read more about these changes in today's New York Times as well as in the Workgroup's report .
