DSM-5 Guidebook: The Essential Companion To The... =LINK=
We wrote this Learning Companion to make the DSM-5 accessible to professional counselors. Given the huge implications of changes to diagnostic nomenclature, our primary goal was to break down the changes and additions found within the revised manual. We used language that was applicable to the work that counselors do and, after reviewing major philosophical and structural changes, organized the book by disorders counselors most frequently diagnose. The learning companion is divided into four parts grouped by diagnostic similarity and relevance to the counseling profession. In each of the four parts, we provide a basic description of the diagnostic classification and an overview of the specific disorders covered, highlighting essential features as they relate to the counseling profession. We also provide a comprehensive review of specific changes, when applicable, from the DSM-IV-TR to the DSM-5. When specific or significant changes to a diagnostic category or diagnosis have not been made, we provide a general review of either the category or the diagnosis, but we refrain from providing the reader with too much detail because the purpose of this Learning Companion is to focus on changes from the DSM-IV-TR to the DSM-5.
