Draft of the DSM V Just Out
a: there's a lot of interest in mental health issues around here, especially from persons with valuable lived experience, and
b: everyone loves trashing the DSM, both as a concept and in particulars,
I offer you the newly released draft copy of the DSM V. Comment is invited by the various committes, though you have to log on, so knock yourselves out! (just an expression...really)
I've barely had time to look at it myself. I note that the final publication date is May 2013, rather than sometime in 2011 as I had originally understood. I had also heard a rumor that the term schizophrenia was going the way of the dinosaur, but that is apparently incorrect, though there are some changes in the diagnostic formulations.
Look forward to getting back to this when I've had a bit of time to read it.
