My biggest point of contention when it comes to the DSM-IV-TR is that someone (who, I don't know) chose to not include complex PTSD disorders of extreme stress, not otherwise specified, as was recommended by many experts in the field (Judith Hermann among others.) Because of this, all PTSD is still lumped together in the anxiety disorders. Complex PTSD needs to be in with the dissociative disorders; all the evidence points that way. Virtually all of the diagnostic criteria for PTSD puts it in the dissociative disorders category anyway; only a limited number of the most superficial symptoms are similar to the anxiety disorders. Quite honestly, I'm not sure why it's still in there, except that some stubborn old MD's are probably still arguing for it. If PTSD can't have its own category, as it maybe should, then it likely should go in with the DD's rather than the anxiety disorders. But this is my pet peeve, clearly!
