Abstract

Culturally competent diagnostic systems are necessary for an effective and ethical clinical practice, as cultural diversity of patients increase around the world. Latin American psychiatrists hold a long-standing commitment to this enterprise. Recently, two main Latin American adaptations to the international psychiatric classification have emerged: the Cuban Glossary of Psychiatry, and the project of the Latin American Guide for Psychiatric Diagnosis (GLADP). Keeping ICD-10 as the basis for nosological organization, GLADP is being developed with contributions by mental health professionals from Latin American countries. GLADP comprises 4 parts: (1) historical and cultural framework, (2) comprehensive diagnosis and formulation, (3) psychiatric nosology and (4) appendixes.
