Clinical Science Forum
Perspectives on Diagnostic Systems
Thursday, May 26, 2011,
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
The theoretical underpinnings of diagnostic systems will be examined. Conceptual views of such systems are related to theories on the relation between symptoms and constructs. Disorders can be viewed as causal systems, the constructions of clinical scientists, or as latent variables measured through clusters of symptoms. These competing views will be discussed.
