Psychiatric diagnosis has had a long history of scientific investigation and application, with periods of rapid change, instability, and heated controversy. This Special Issue will review the history of psychiatric nomenclature and explore current and future directions in psychiatric diagnosis through the various versions of accepted diagnostic criteria and supporting research literature. It will explore the phenomenological, nosological, biological, and clinical bases of psychiatric diagnosis both broadly and more specifically (for several diagnostic categories). This Special Issue’s extensive, in-depth treatment of psychiatric diagnosis will equip the field to appreciate the complexities of psychiatric diagnosis as it pushes forward toward future advancements.
