Resumen

COVA S., Félix et al. Mental Disorders Over-Diagnosis and DSM diagnosis criteria: Jerome Wakefield's perspective. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2017, vol.55, n.3, pp.186-194. ISSN 0717-9227.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0717-92272017000300186.

Overdiagnosis of mental disorders is an increasing concern, which was accentuated after the publication of the DSM-V. Jerome Wakefield is a renowned critic of the psycopathologization that, however, has developed an intense work to try to better delimit what a mental disorder is without rejecting this concept. A structured review of the work of this author was carried out. His main approaches are summarized and an assessment of his contribution to the discussion in regards of this issue is performed.

Palabras clave : Mental disorder; medicalization; diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders; psychiatric diagnosis.
