The DSM is the primary tool mental health clinicians depend upon to diagnose psychopathology in their clients. DSM-IV-TR in Action brings the DSM to life by providing clear instruction on how to plan for an assessment, accurately diagnose clients, and prepare a comprehensive treatment plan. This book explores how to incorporate DSM-5 changes into the original diagnosis and treatment model and includes DSM-5 categories that correspond to each chapter. This is a must-have resource for mental health professionals and students in social work, counseling, psychology, and psychiatry.
