  • In a recent article, Sleep, Lynam, Widiger, Crowe, and Miller (2019) examined various properties of measures of Criterion A and Criterion B of the Alternative Model for Personality Disorders presented in DSM-5. This commentary discusses the suitability of certain indicators of factor structure, discriminant validity, and incremental validity as evaluative metrics for the assessment of personality disorder, both in general and as applied in that specific study.
