Several statistical techniques are available to shed light on the structure of psychopathology, and each is valuable in its own way. It is, however, important to realize that the results of these techniques are substantially influenced by the structure of the studied instrument. Network analyses are no exception and do not perform miracles. However, they are unique in embracing the diversity of psychopathology, as the approach is both specific, by zooming in on individual symptoms, and transdiagnostic, by zooming out on the broad spectrum of psychopathology. Therefore, I genuinely believe that it will move our field forward.
