Overview

The classification of diseases and mental disorders has seen major reforms in the past decade; one of the main subjects of reform has been neurosis--including substantial renaming and reformulation. From the perspective primarily of the clinician, this book discusses these changes and their significance. The concepts behind the DSM and ICD classifications are described and compared, and the reasons for reformulation are given. Case histories highlight the use of the classifications in practice and are followed by a 4-way critique of the diagnosis: clarity of description; the amount of overlap with other disorders; stability, as measured through studies of outcome; and treatment implications. The shortcomings of the classifications are examined as well, and suggestions are made as to how to overcome them.
