Overview

The five-year process of preparing for the revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) has been organized around a series of conferences convened by the American Psychiatric Association, in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the U.S. National Institutes of Health, to address the future of psychiatric diagnosis. Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders: Refining the Research Agenda for DSM-V is the fruit of one of those conferences and presents the most academically sound, thought-provoking, and timely papers from the proceedings.

As the conference and book demonstrate, recent advances in psychiatric diagnosis suggest a new approach to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) classification: • Research into the pathogenesis of OCD increasingly supports reclassification out of the anxiety disorders and into a separate group of obsessive-compulsive-related disorders (OCRDs). • The relationships among OCRDs may be better defined, delineated, and understood if the current categorical diagnostic approach is supplemented with a dimensional approach which assesses obsessive-compulsive symptom domains.• Obsessive-compulsive disorders are believed to be underdiagnosed in patients who complain of broad symptoms of anxiety, and reclassification of OCD as an OCRD would promote more careful examination of distinct obsessive-compulsive symptoms, yield more accurate diagnosis, and result in more effective treatments.• Reclassification may facilitate future research directions in examining the biological underpinnings of these disorders.

In addition to examining the genetic, neurological, and ethno-cultural bases for OCRDs, the book gives special attention to disorders that cross current diagnostic categories, including: • Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD)• Tourette's syndrome and trichotillomania• Impulse-control disorders

The process leading to publication of DSM-V is by its nature an exhaustive and complex one, and the conferences play a critical role in reviewing relevant research, assessing the status of scientific knowledge, and advancing that knowledge base. Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders: Refining the Research Agenda for DSM-V represents the cutting-edge thinking that will culminate in new diagnoses, classifications, and standards of practice for this debilitating set of disorders. Clinicians and academicians will be fascinated by this glimpse into the next generation of the DSM-V.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A. (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book reviews obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder literature from a conference, "The Future of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Refining the Research Agenda," convened by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and supported by the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health as one of the key events in the construction of DSM-V, scheduled for 2013. It is written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field.
Purpose: The purpose of this book and the conference on which it is based is to "underscore APA's interest in ensuring that information and recommendations developed as part of this process are available to scientific groups who are concurrently updating other national and international classifications of mental and behavioral disorders."
Audience: The book is designed to give the target audience of "clinicians, academicians, and nosologists an in-depth look at how obsessive-compulsive phenomena are represented in the current diagnostic system and the DSM-V might better address the needs of patients with these disorders." These reviews have been published in Psychiatric Research and CNS Spectrums.
Features: Topics covered include the boundaries of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) , the relationship between body dysmorphic disorder, eating disorders and OCD, the relationship between Tourette syndrome, trichotillomania and OCD, the relationship between impulse control disorders and OCD, symptom dimensions in OCD, genetics and OCD, the relationship between autism, Parkinson's disease, and OCD, cross-species models of OCD, and obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders. Each chapter ends with citations of relevant and recent scientific literature.
Assessment: This informative compilation of reviews on obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders will give readers some insight into the thought behind the ideas going into the DSM-V criteria.
