There are loads of people reading and observing without participating. I suppose you dont have to participate. But what else is happening is that your observations are going to an assessment body that never stumbled across these pages. Yet they have the power to integrate the findings and conclusions you have made into the current system of psychiatric thought, which will ultimately be passed down to the doctors and then on to the people who use their services. So we have got to have faith in what you are doing. So it is good you asked. But for people who are against the systems and classifications of psychiatry, and its role in placing a yardstick on behaviour, your study might be seen as another brick in the whole between natural behaviour and a detached analytical elite. There is also the question of how any analysis of human behaviour is valid if the peole carrying out that analysis remove their energies out of the interactive arena - there must be some degree of impoverishment for both parties. So my vote is NO dont do it, ask them why they need this carved up approach.
Or if you do do it, publish your findings on this site and include the reponse to those findings in your research. Sounds fair?
