Insisting that the Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule does not have face validity contributes nothing to science. The Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule incorporates the DSM-IV criteria for somatization disorder, major depressive disorder, borderline personality disorder, and the five dissociative disorders. To state that these sections of the Dissociative Disorders Interview Schedule do not have face validity is idiosyncratic, since all these diagnoses have been officially endorsed by APA. The DSM-IV criteria for dissociative identity disorder must have face validity with a large number of influential academic psychiatrists even to be in the DSM-IV. These psychiatrists could all be deluded, but that’s the way it is with face validity. Face validity does not establish any other kind of validity.
