The Cultural Formulation Interview exemplifies one approach. Outline for Cultural Formulation and Cultural Formulation Interview The Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI) is a DSM-5 innovation. It operationalizes the DSM-IV Outline for Cultural Formulation (OCF) into a set of questions and explicit instructions. The main goal of the OCF in DSM-IV was to help clinicians identify cultural-contextual factors affecting the patient that are relevant to diagnosis and treatment [23]. The OCF organized the relevance of culture within the patient-clinician encounter around five dimensions: (1) the cultural identity of the individual, (2) the cultural explanations of the individual’s illness, (3) the cultural factors related to psychosocial environment and levels of functioning, (4) cultural elements of the relationship between the individual and the clinicians, and (5) the overall cultural assessment for diagnosis and care [24, 25].

They seek to match what they see with what the script requires for verification or rejection of more or less stereotyped clinical hypotheses. These scripts, along with other policies and procedures, seem to be organisational and perhaps individual defences against too much emotional contact with the patient, seen as a factor that would perhaps undermine the clinical task. Although these contradictions exist within the UK, there are reasons to suspect that they are not evident in other countries.
