Although I have read different definitions, that's the one I have seen most often.

I'm not sure where it originated but am assuming it's because the word poly means many.

IDK though for sure.
I located the origins of the therapy model but not the diagnostic manual for the disorder. thanks for your reply, sent you a pm.

update on my search ........diagnostic manual I am now looking into is the PDM (Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual)
