Book News
Intended to be used in conjunction with the new fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), the highly influential classification guide to mental disorders, this is a desktop reference (although it is actually small enough to almost be considered a pocket reference) intended to aid in navigation of the DSM-5, by providing only the DSM-5 Classification (i.e., the list of disorders, subtypes, specifiers, and diagnostic codes), sections describing the use of the manual, and diagnostic criteria sets.
