Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5ed (DSM-5) Paperback – 15 May 2013
Enhance your purchase
Frequently bought together
DSM-5 has been underused and underappreciated as a source of commentary and context for the disorders whose boundaries it defines. In fact, there is much to admire in the content as well as the design of the volume. All too often trainees, busy clinicians, and educators alike skip hurriedly past its hundreds of pages of text to locate the boxed criterion sets that have come to be seen as the primary function of the manual. In doing so, they miss a rich set of clinical descriptions, conceptual frameworks, and related information regarding the disorders described. Treated not as a manual but as a textbook of clinical pathology, DSM-5 proves to be a thorough, authoritative, and respectably well-written addition to the genre.�-- (08/25/2016)
From the Back Cover
This new edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5(R)), 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. This manual, which creates a common language for clinicians involved in the diagnosis of mental disorders, includes concise and specific criteria 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.
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. DSM-5(R) is the most definitive resource for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders.

That said, for the price, it probably serves the purpose for those casual clinicians who don't need letter-perfect copies.
Good quality book that gets a lot of use.
A good therapist should be able to accurately ‘diagnose’ the condition and select an evidence based therapy protocol that fits this diagnosis. DSM helps guide this.
