This article has two purposes: to clarify what the DSM-IV-TR was… Expand

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • International journal of law and psychiatry
  • 2011
TLDR
It is claimed that the new criteria provide a reconceptualization that clarifies the distinction between normal variation and paraphilic disorder in a way relevant to forensic settings, but it is argued that the DSM-5 proposals would yield criteria for paraphilic disorders that are conceptually invalid in ways open to serious forensic abuse.
