Within the last few years, progress has been made in our understanding of personality disorders (PDs). The essential dimensional nature of PDs has been recognized for decades, yet our diagnostic terminology continues to be based on categorical disease-based definitions. However, an Alternative Model for DSM-5 Personality Disorders (AMPD) was developed that is included in Section III of DSM-5—the section for “Emerging Measures and Models.” Dr. Oldham was Co-Chair of the Work Group that developed the model and will describe the model and summarize the substantial body of new research focusing on this new step in a dimensional direction for PDs.
