Expertly designed, the Structured Clinical Interview for the DSM-5 Alternative Model for Personality Disorders (SCID-5-AMPD) is a semistructured diagnostic interview that guides clear assessment of the defining components of personality pathology as presented in the DSM-5 Alternative Model. The modular format of the SCID-5-AMPD allows the researcher or clinician to focus on those aspects of the Alternative Model of most interest.
Module III: Structured Clinical Interview for Personality Disorders (Including Personality Disorder–Trait Specified) provides a comprehensive assessment of each of the six specific personality disorders of the Alternative Model. It features clear guidance through the new diagnosis of Personality Disorder–Trait-Specified and elucidates when this diagnosis is applicable. The module concludes with a global assessment of the level of personality functioning and includes a survey of all the personality disorder diagnoses in the module.

- Module I dimensionally assesses self and interpersonal functioning using the Level of Personality Functioning Scale.
- Module II dimensionally assesses the five pathological personality trait domains and their corresponding 25 trait facets.
