The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-5 Personality Disorders (SCID-5-PD) is a semistructured diagnostic interview for clinicians and researchers designed to assess ten personality disorders (clusters A, B and C) included in the DSM-5 as well another defined personality disorder.

  1. avoidant personality disorder
  2. dependent personality disorder
  3. obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
  4. paranoid personality disorder
  5. schizotypal personality disorder
  6. schizoid personality disorder
  7. histrionic personality disorder
  8. narcissistic personality disorder
  9. borderline personality disorder
  10. anti-social personality disorder

The SCID-5-PD is meant to create a good relation with the respondent. It can be applied to identify personality disorders and to make both categorial (present/not present) and profile diagnosis.

The SCID-5-PD is an updated version of the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis II Disorders (SCID-II). Its name SCID-5-PD reflects the absence of axis division within the DSM-5. Although the DSM-IV criteria were not changed in the DSM-5, the SCID-5-PD items underwent careful review and modification in order to grasp in the best possible way constructs described in the diagnostic criteria. The possibility of making the profile diagnosis is also an important addition in the SCID-5-PD.     

The SCID-5-PD  includes the Screening Personality Questionnaire SCID-5-SPQ which is a useful self-rating tool for patients or respondents. The SCID-5-SPQ can be applied for screeining purposes; its administration takes approx. 20 min. and helps to reduce time of the interview.

The SCID-5-PD will be a valuable tool, helping clinicians and researchers to more precisely diagnose various personality disorders.

Usually the full-length interview is conducted but a clinician or researcher can decide to conduct only those parts of it which refer to disorders s/he finds important.
