Trump Derangement Syndrome


The American Psychiatric Association is responsible for providing access for proposals of: changes; corrections; and clarifications to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).

Due to the recent evolution of information gathering and sharing that the internet now provides us with, the process for new proposals has been altered to reflect a “continuous improvement” model.

The APA invites proposals for changes to DSM-5. Changes will be made on a rolling basis, as warranted by advances in the science of mental disorders. Advances in digital publishing have paved the way to the adoption of this “continuous improvement” model. This approach differs from the previous mechanism for making changes to the DSM, which was to revise the manual in its entirety at variable intervals. Although this older approach had the advantage of facilitating standardized communication among users of the classifications, it prevented the incorporation of new scientific knowledge into the manual as it emerged.

Anyone can initiate a proposal for consideration via the APA’s Website:

Since the election of Donald Trump as President a relatively new phenomenon has emerged which is becoming increasingly common but not entirely exclusive to leftists on a global scale.

Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS for short, seems to be characterised by a cognitive dissonance between an individual’s subjective understandings with an objective reality. When large gatherings of people suffering from TDS congregate, this condition seems to feed on itself to create a form of mass hysteria not seen since the enforced rallies that were characteristic of socialist regimes in the 20th century.

I welcome any advice or feedback from readers who may be able to provide additional information on putting together a formalised study which could then be submitted to the APA for the inclusion of this relatively new mental condition.

If successful, hopefully this will go some way towards providing the necessary and appropriate care and treatment people who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome so desperately need.
