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 10 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 chapter organization reflects a lifespan approach, with disorders typically diagnosed in childhood (such as neurodevelopmental disorders) at the beginning of the manual, and those more typical of older adults (such as neurocognitive disorders) placed at the end. Also included are age-related factors specific to diagnosis. The latest findings in neuroimaging and genetics have been integrated into each disorder along with gender and cultural considerations. The revised organizational structure recognizes symptoms that span multiple diagnostic categories, providing new clinical insight in diagnosis. 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). Dimensional assessments for research and validation of clinical results have been provided. 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. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. The information contained in the manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, and occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, more commonly known as the DSM, is published by the American Psychiatric Association and aims to list and describe all mental disorders. The publication of DSM-V in 2013 brought many changes. Diagnosing the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is written for all those who wonder whether the DSM-V now classifies the right people in the right way. It is aimed at patients, mental health professionals, and academics with an interest in mental health. Issues addressed include: * What are the main changes that have been made to the classification? * How is the DSM affected by financial links with the pharmaceutical industry? * To what extent were patients involved in revising the classification? * How are diagnoses added to the DSM? * Does medicalisation threaten the idea that anyone is normal? * What happens when changes to diagnostic criteria mean that people lose their diagnoses? * How important will the DSM be in the future?

In collaboration with representatives of American Academy of Family Physicians American Academy of Pediatrics American Board of Family Practice American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists American College of Physicians American Medical Association American Psychiatric Association Association of Departments of Family Medicine Society of General Internal Medicine Society of Teachers of Family Medicine "DSM--IV(R)--PC, International Version" is identical in content to the "DSM--IV(R)--PC" except for its use of "International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems," Tenth Revision (ICD-10), diagnostic codes in place of the ICD-9-CM codes. Primary care physicians are often the first or only medical professionals to see patients with psychiatric and mental disorders. Until now, they have lacked a diagnostic tool geared to the primary care setting. The "DSM--IV(R)--PC, International Version" is the first manual of mental disorders created specifically for use by primary care physicians. Developed as a collaborative effort between psychiatric and primary care organizations, this concise, user-friendly manual is a "must have" resource for every primary care physician. Unlike other versions of DSM-IV, this manual is compatible with how the physician manages the primary care visit. To aid the primary care physician's diagnosis, "DSM--IV(R)--PC, International Version" focuses on common conditions, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. It is epidemiologically oriented, with the most common and most important disorders listed first. This unique publication includes conditions that are common in primary care but that are not as well characterized inDSM-IV. Using an algorithmic format, "DSM--IV(R)--PC, International Version" assists practitioners in moving from presenting symptoms to diagnosis. Symptoms and features that discriminate among disorders are emphasized. Students and residents will also benefit from this new format, making this text an outstanding curriculum tool for medical education.
