Assessment Of Comorbid Pds

The assessment process for evaluating PDs has four key elements. The first is assessment through formal and/or structured assessment and testing. The second involves the assessment of what we call "soft-signs" for assessing PDs. The third involves the therapist's familiarity with and understanding of the criteria sets of the DSM.
