DSM Books

"In May 2013, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was released. This new edition redefines Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and might have a significant impact on your family, or someone you care for who struggles with ASD. I have posted this new page to my website in order to provide you access to information regarding the changes. Below you will find a link to the American Psychiatric Association's site which addresses the DSM-5. I hope you find this page helpful."

DSM5 bookThis 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 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 "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, occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists.
