-other areas of major functioning in life are less and less important, and become dysfunctional C: Duration
-signs of disturbance for atleast 6 months
-persistence of atleast one symptom for a month D: Schizoaffective and Mood Disorder exclusion
-Schizoaffective Disorder and Mood Disorder With Psychotic Features have been ruled out because either (1) no Major Depressive Episode, Manic Episode, or Mixed Episode have occurred concurrently with the active-phase symptoms; or (2) if mood episodes have occurred during active-phase symptoms, their total duration has been brief relative to the duration of the active and residual periods. E:Substance/general medical condition exclusion
-disturbance is not due to any physiological effects (substances exogenous to the body) F: Relationship to a Pervasive Developmental Disorder
-If there is a history of Autistic Disorder or another Pervasive Developmental Disorder, the additional diagnosis of Schizophrenia is made only if prominent delusions or hallucinations are also present for at least a month (or less if successfully treated). DSM Criteria: Split Personality Disorder A: Disruption of identity characterized by two or more distinct personality states or an experience of possession. This involves marked discontinuity in sense of self and sense of agency, accompanied by related alterations in affect, behavior, consciousness, memory B: Recurrent gaps in the recall of everyday events, important personal information, and/or traumatic events that are inconsistent with ordinary forgetting. C: The symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. D: The disturbance is not a normal part of a broadly accepted cultural or religious practice. (Note: In children, the symptoms are not attributable to imaginary playmates or other fantasy play.) E: The symptoms are not attributable to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., blackouts or chaotic behavior during Alcohol Intoxication) or another medical condition (e.g., complex partial seizures). Nina's Personality -Nina has distinct phases under which she identifies as the "sweet girl" and in which she identifies as the rebellious girl
