Hi all, would you include the positive and negative symptoms in a 16 mark question about classification and diagnosis. Or just stick to ICD/DSM and the issues with having lots of symptoms?

Yes I would. For classification, I would think they would be important key terms when describing the criteria. For diagnosis, they can then refer to the requirement for at least one positive symptom for DSM diagnosis but not for ICD and use this evaluatively.
