Neurotic disorders dominated the landscape of psychopathology for almost a century before dying a sudden and traumatic death in 1980 with the publication of the DSM-III. The cause of death was unbearably heavy theoretical baggage and acute empirical insufficiencies. But the study of the temperament of neuroticism lived on, mostly in the laboratories of developmental and personality psychologists. Now, research has delineated empirically supported common dimensions shared by all anxiety, mood, and related emotional disorders, including higher-order temperaments, mood distortions and dysregulations, and extent and types of avoidance. In this presentation, I suggest a new integrative diagnostic scheme for the emotional disorders, as well as a unified transdiagnostic treatment addressing shared higher-order temperamental factors.
