Review the articles by Gabbard (1994) and Gonsiorek (1995). It is noteworthy that their typologies and perspectives of impaired professionals overlap conceptually, but were in fact developed independently: One group was working in Kansas, the other in Minnesota, and each began to write about their observations with this population, unbeknownst to the other. Upon learning of the other, both groups exchanged ideas, and found them to be similar descriptively, even though the Kansas group (Gabbard), based at Menninger, was staunchly psychoanalytic, while the Minneapolis group was not at all psychoanalytic and came out of a cognitive, behavioral, dustbowl empiricism mold.

You will no doubt notice another noteworthy feature of both groups is that they often avoid using current DSM diagnoses, but instead operate at a level of descriptive psychopathology and symptom clusters in their assessment typologies.

· Argue the case for why they might be doing that.

· Critique, justify, or dispute this particular non- DSM diagnostic approach while comparing it to the DSM approach.

· Assess what kinds of empirical research might test these assessment typologies.

· Briefly propose a tentative diagnosis in this arena for potential addition to the DSM and argue why this proposal should (or should not) be considered.
