Book Description

"The Conceptual Evolution of DSM-5" highlights recent advances in our understanding of cross-cutting factors relevant to psychiatric diagnosis and nosology. These include developmental age-related aspects of psychiatric diagnosis and symptom presentation; underlying neuro-circuitry and genetic similarities that may clarify diagnostic boundaries and inform a more etiologically-based taxonomy of disorder categories; and, gender/culture-specific influences in the prevalence of and service use for psychiatric disorders. This text also considers the role of disability in the diagnosis of mental disorders and the potential utility of integrating a dimensional approach to psychiatric diagnosis. A powerful reference tool for anyone practicing or studying psychiatry, social work, psychology, or nursing, "The Conceptual Evolution of DSM-5" details the proceedings from the 2009 American Psychopathological Association's Annual Meeting. In its chapters, readers will find a thorough review of the empirical evidence regarding the utility of cross-cutting factors in nosology, as well as specific suggestions for how they may be fully integrated into the forthcoming fifth edition of "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders".

Product Description


"This volume provides a snapshot of the progress and the uncertainties of psychiatric classification and diagnosis at the end of the first decade of the new millennium. The reader is likely to perceive that a paradigm shift is upcoming, although the connotates of this shift are still unclear. He will probably get a sense of excitement mixed with agoraphobia, which is the best our times are able to offer in this area."-- "Mario Maj, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Chairmen, Department of Psychiatry, University of Naples SUN"

1.0 out of 5 stars DSM-5 explained 30 Jan 2013
By Phyllis Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is not worth buying, it was presented as a book that would help a professional in the transition process from the DSMIV revised. As a professional counselor it did not meet my expectations.
5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you this book will help me a lot. 22 Jun 2013
