Description: The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-5 Personality Disorders (SCID-5-PD) is the updated version of the former Structural Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis II Personality Disorders (SCID-II) to assess the 10 DSM-5 Personality Disorders across Clusters A, B, and C.  Designed to build rapport, the SCID-5-PD can be used to make personality disorder diagnoses, either categorically (present or absent) or dimensionally.  The SCID-5-PD name reflects the elimination of the multiaxial system in DSM-5.  Although the DSM-IV Personality Disorder criteria are unchanged in DSM-5, the SCID-5-PD interview questions have been thoroughly reviewed and revised to optimally capture the construct embodied in the diagnostic criteria.

In addition, a dimensional scoring component has been added to the SCID-5-PD.  The basic structure of the SCID-5-PD is similar to the other SCID-5 interviews (such as the Research Version, SCID-5-RV, and the Clinician Version, SCID-5-CV) that cover non-personality DSM-5 disorders.  Features include the following:

  • Questions assessing the DSM-5 criteria for each of the 10 personality disorders: Avoidant Personality Disorder, Dependent Personality Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder, Paranoid Personality Disorder, Schizotypal Personality Disorder, Schizoid Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and Antisocial Personality Disorder.
  • A User’s Guide for the SCID-5-PD containing essential guidance for use of the SCID-5-PD, including an appendix of a completed SCID-5-PD and SCID-5-SPQ for a sample patient
  • An optional SCID-5-SPQ that serves as a brief, 20-minute self-report screening tool to reduce the time of the SCID-5-PD clinical interview.  The SCID-5-SPQ requires an eighth grade or higher reading level (as determined by the Flesch-Kincaid formula).  Its 106 questions correspond directly to each first question in the full SCID-5-PD.
