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.

After much controversy and expense the DSM V was released last month. Initial review of this text is overall positive. The ICD codes (F codes)are included with each DSM designation. No more five axes or GAF noted. Now inclusive of qualifiers and more dimensional in scope.It will certainly present a learning curve to adjust to. Expensive at $149 in softcover. Recommend corollary training to utilize effectively.

Much better lay-out than IV. Not as bad as they say it is. Personality disorders were largely left alone. Lots of positive changes to PTSD and DID. There are now child criteria separate from adult for PTSD, and DID is no longer just an overt-presentation diagnosis. The criteria are now at the front of each diagnosis section, and the manual is much more readable. I don't understand what all the fuss is about. No manual will ever be perfect. At least this one tries to give a billable code for a wider range of presentations.

Good information.

Just received my used copy from Barnes&Noble. It stinks like cigarettes and is poorer quality than my 10 year old copy of the DSM IV-TR! I am surprised that B&N did not send a better copy, despite it's being used! Sending it back today!

Better behavioral and common-sense terms and examples. Continuum of symptom intensity better fits the human condition.

Still getting use to this new manual. There are many changes that I personally don't agree with, but then there are some that are no brainers. But regardless everyone should have this new manual.

Print is small making it difficult to read. Paper is thin (cheap) and I am concerned that it will not hold up to regular use. I will not comment on the content, because for those that use this for work, we know of all the changes of the dxs. I will say, that although nothing will be done with this, is that I really miss the old format with the listing of dx towards the front of the book. This book is thinner than the DSM IV TR, but I would have taken the extra thickness, if the formating of the DSMV closer to the last one.

The DSM-5 is unable to decide if it wants to be a self-important diagnostic manual or a superficial psychiatric textbook.
