Fairfax, VA, USA. The Manual for Diagnosis of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) is the principal desktop diagnostic reference for psychiatric diagnosis. Used by physicians and other caregivers in the United States and around the world, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) published the current edition, DSM-IV, in 1994. While influential, there is considerable variation in its acceptance and practical application.
The APA named the Work Groups and membership for the next DSM-5 revision, scheduled an early draft for comment (pub. 2010), and plans on completion of the final version in May 2013. The APA stresses there will be a greater emphasis on evidence-based medicine.
The APA announcement stimulated wide interest in the professional, patient, and activist communities. TS-Si.org expanded its coverage of this important development with a variety of articles that touch on the DSM-V deliberations. Reactions and suggestions from our readers are always welcome. You can see current comments from our readers in the TS-Si.org Comments Section.
This article carries the date of its most recent revision.
TS-Si.org features an extensive collection of research abstracts, technical articles and opinion pieces on the DSM. All TS-Si content is searchable.
