The Task Force on DSM-IV and members of the DSM-IV Work Groups have chronicled their efforts and the results in the DSM-IV Sourcebook, which documents the rationale and empirical support for the text and criteria sets presented in DSM-IV. This third of four volumes concludes the DSM-IV literature reviews and summarizes the DSM-IV Work Group efforts that led to publication of the DSM-IV Options Book.

Each review contains the following six sections: Statement of the Issues—explicitly outlines the issues addressed in the review; Significance of the Issues—frames the importance of each issue and discusses its clinical and empirical significance; Methods—documents the extent to which the reviews were systematic and comprehensive in their coverage of the literature; Results—provides an objective and thorough summary of the findings most relevant to each issue; Discussion—addresses the implications of the clinical research findings for DSM-IV; and Recommendations—recommendations for DSM-IV based on the review of the literature.

• Disorders Usually First Diagnosed in Infancy, Childhood, or Adolescence
• Eating Disorders
• The DSM-IV Multiaxial System
• Family Relational Problems
