Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
One of the most anticipated books in the medical field is finally here!
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5™)
This new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5™), used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, is the product of more than ten years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research. The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings—inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.
New features and enhancements make DSM-5™ easier to use across all settings:
• The latest findings in neuroimaging and genetics have been integrated into each disorder along with gender and cultural considerations.
• Specific criteria have been streamlined, consolidated, or clarified to be consistent with clinical practice (including the consolidation of autism disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder into autism spectrum disorder; the streamlined classification of bipolar and depressive disorders; the restructuring of substance use disorders for consistency and clarity; and the enhanced specificity for major and mild neurocognitive disorders).
• Both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes are included for each disorder, and the organizational structure is consistent with the new ICD-11 in development.
• And much more!
