Booknews
The product of a Task Force and 13 Work Groups of the American Psychiatric Association, DSM-IV represents the first complete change in DSM in 13 years. In addition to increased clarity, specificity, and clinical utility, it features increased emphasis on the influence of culture and ethnicity on psychiatric assessment and diagnosis; increased emphasis on the role of substance use and general medical conditions in the development of psychiatric disorders; and increased emphasis on how development across the life span influences the presentation and assessment of psychiatric disorders.
