Overview

The last 6 years has seen many advances in our knowledge of psychiatric illnesses. The DSM-IV-TR™ spans the bridge between DSM- IV™ and DSM-V™ to ensure that the most relevant new information since the DSM- IV™ literature review in 1992 was incorporated and to enhance the educational value. Specifically, new information on associated features, including associated laboratory and physical findings, has been added for many of the disorders.

Sections on prevalence, gender/age/culture, course, and familial pattern have also been revised to reflect recent research findings. More comprehensive differential diagnoses have been incorporated for many of the disorders.

Changes were to the following diagnostic criteria:

  • Personality change Due to a General Medical Condition
  • Paraphilias
  • Tic Disorders

just responding to comment that the dsm-4 is based entirely on empirical evidence - that is simply not true - it is a very good book and very necessary but that comment is in no way accurate - in large part, the manual was designed to assist in future research - there are many areas where assumptions are made based upon consensus or opinion and therefore not based upon empirical evidence - if for no other reason, this often occurs because the condition described has not yet been thoroughly studied - so great book but it needs to stand on what it is and not be overestimated for what it isn't - just to give one quick example - in DSM3, the diagnosis of major depression required six months of symptoms and more recent editions require only two weeks to make the definition - both decisions were subjective

The DSM-IV is a reference book, a diagnostic tool and a useful resource. It is not the final word on an individual's condition nor does it appear to be part of a conspiracy theory as some reviewers have intimated. If it is used in the way the authors intended then it is very handy. Keep a copy in your counselling office - you never know when you might need it!!

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is one of the most comprehensive tools used in psychology today. It is the tool that is most widely recognized and most widely used. While it takes some time to get used to the format, it does provide some great information. Prior to purchasing this book I considered some of the supplemental guides that are available. However, nothing was as thorough as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (version 4). Plus, if someone is planning on working in the field of psychology or social work it is important to have all the necessary tools. This book, without question, is one of the most important tools.

This is a very helpful book. It describes psychiatric disorders and how to code them for insurance purposes. Ths DSM V is a year or two away, so this is the book to have for now.

I was told by my instructor to get this book if at all possible, used or new. It took me time to go through it to understand the format of the entire book. This was something necessary to get familiar with the process of using it, but also, it was extremely helpful in understanding why it is so highly recommended. Now that I have done this, everytime I pick it up, my time is not wasted in researching what I need to. It is definately worth the purchase and is now very valuable to me.

When I was in school this book was my bible. There is a wealth of information in it. I have had the opportunity to preview parts of DSM V TR that will be out in 2010. This book makes diagnosing so much easier when a disorder presents as possibly two. That is where the Difirential diagnosis comes in to play to avoid mistakes. To make such an allegation such as Richard S made is no more than uneducated arrogance. The DSM IV and all the way back to the first DSM is absolutely based on pure empirical scientific evidence. The APA takes decades or more to produce a newer version. That should tell you how much research and case studies go into these books. The DSM IV was 1st copywritten in 1994 and the DSM V is not due to be released until late 2010. I have had a glimpse to the new DSM V TR and because of 9/11 their will be much more helpful information that we have at our disposal to treat those in need. As for commentor Richard S. all I can say is that arrogance is fear. I have said for many years that this book should not be made available to the general public, they do not know how to use it, they cannot understand half of the language or terminology. I feel it should only be sold to Physicians, Psychiatrists, Psychologists Licensed Social workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Psychiatric Nurses and students in a Graduate related program. Apparently, Richard is not in the profession or he would not stand in judgement.

A very much needed book for social workers. Its fairly easy to use and has all the up to date information that in necessary for the field.

If you are a psychology student or obviously in the psychology field, you need the DSM-IV-TR. It is an excellent resource for learning the criteria for mental disorders. I have learned a lot from this book and will continue to rely on it for the most up-to-date diagnostic criteria. To the other 'reviewers'... I think there is some personal opinion being abused here, and very likely this book has not even been read by these 'reviewers'.

The DSM-IV may not be empirically based, however, if you have read any of the myriad research literature, it is clear that the diagnostic criteria of the disorders in the DSM-IV are not arbitrary...nothings perfect, but I wouldn't go as far as to call the Manual driven by drug companies...read more Journal articles and evaluate this issue for yourself.
