    Diagnostic approaches applied in psychiatry are often criticized and deemed unsatisfactory because of their relative lack of reliability and validity. One reason for this complexity lies in the purely symptomatic approach to diagnosis. This approach also results in misdiagnosis, difficulties and high risk of aberrant therapeutic choices. The problem is also the source of great difficulty in differentiating the normal from the pathological in situations of emotional and psychological distress that should not be the subject of a psychiatric diagnosis.
