5.0 out of 5 stars A previewer reviews the final product 11 Dec 2013
By Dolores Puterbaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was pleased to be a reviewer for this book during its final stages, and with that disclosure, am making a recommendation here. I have read several books on the new DSM-5 and attended at least 12 hours of training about the DSM-5 in as many months. Given all that, as a private practitioner and a college instructor at the graduate and undergraduate levels, I am happy to have this fairly priced, comprehensive overview of the changes in the new DSM-5. For many disorders, the ICD-9 code, the name of the disorder, and the upcoming ICD-10 codes are presented in charts. There is a straightforward explanation of the reorganization from the multi-axial diagnosis. I liked the depth of the former diagnostic formation and had heard of the DSM-5 change with preemptive resentment. Thus, my endorsement of this book ought not to be construed as unabashed enthusiasm for every change in the DSM-5. However, we must deal with the parameters as they exist, and this book clarifies those parameters succinctly. Of particular interest to many will be the discussion of the division of the anxiety disorders into separate chapters for anxiety/panic disorders, trauma-related disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders. Another point of interest is the blending of substance abuse and dependence, eliminating the nuanced and subjective differences within substance use problems. Dr. Reichenberg provides an explanation of the cross-cutting questionnaires, which are intended to provide a quick means of assessing various complaints and symptoms that may impact diagnosis, treatment or prognosis. She also addresses the increased emphasis on culture in the DSM-5. Practitioners will appreciate the list of free assessments, drawing on the revised diagnostic criteria, available for download at the APA website. This a very accessible, manageable handbook as we translate our experience with the DSM-IV-TR to the DSM-5. - Dolores T. Puterbaugh, Ph.D., LMHC, LMFT, NCC

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, concise, practical 14 Jan 2014
By Carol Kerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a clear, cogent, useful presentation of the important things to know about DSM5. It is well-organized and practical for orienting both the experienced practitioner and the novice to both the newest DSM and the established ICD system. I have reviewed several texts on DSM 5 and attended 2 seminars; I teach clinical interns and train clinical supervisors. This is the reference I recommend. Reichenberg's book is very accessible and avoids the over-inclusion or editorializing that some texts fall into. The summary charts make it truly useful handbook both for someone just learning diagnostics or someone just needing to understand the diffferences between DSM!V and DSM5. It is the right size, the right price, and well-written.

I have been looking for this book since beginning to prepare for the changes ahead. I'm a clinical professional and at last someone has digested the material and put it in a usable form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better priced than a day long professsional training. 20 Feb 2014
By Anthony Sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Earlier, I took a day long training on the DSM V changes. Many of us left rather confused and our heads were hurting. I knew that I would need further training and reading. Fortunately Reichenberg's book fits both of those requirements. I like how well she breaks down the new DSM changes and provides insight as to the reasons for the changes and justifications along with some of the controversies. I will still look for in-person trainings, but I don't think I will need the Excedrin too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect book to make an easy transition 19 Jan 2014
By Rita Mae - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to find that someone had written a book that highlights the changes from the DSM-IV-TR to the new DSM-V. Now, instead of having to read the DSM from front to back to note the changes, I can refer to this book to find what I need to know. This book is invaluable for anyone who works in the psychiatric field.
