Abstract

A depressive type of personality disorder has been described by both German phenomenologists and psychoanalysts and has been used by clinicians for years. Although this personality type has been included in standard international nosologic systems (ICD-9), it has never been recognized in DSM. This literature review identifies and explores the issues relevant to the possible inclusion of such a category - an axis II personality disorder linked to axis I depressive disorder -in the upcoming DSM-IV.
