Intended for beginning and seasoned mental health professionals, this invaluable book is a comprehensive and effective resource that will help you learn and apply the DSM-IV system. Thorough and up-to-date, this guide is the only DSM reference that provides information on how to use the Culture-Bound syndromes and gives a detailed example of how to do a Cultural Formulation. Written by nationally respected clinician, supervisor, and educator Dr. Carlton Munson, The Mental Health Diagnostic Desk Reference will help end clinical gridlock and enable you to improve services to your clients within the context of managed care.

A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TEXT for a broad spectrum of practitioners and students in the helping profession. Provides a comprehensive, well-ordered, and richly illustrated body of information that will assist in the complex, interdisciplinary process of diagnosis. . . . Also contains a wealth of historical material about the search for accuracy in the understanding and subsequent treatment of a range of mental disorders. . . . The material on cultural aspects of these disorders will be of considerable help. . . . WILL BE OF GREAT ASSISTANCE to those who wish to, or need to, learn more about the DSM approach to classification. (Francis J. Turner, DSW, CSW, Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Social Work, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)

Editorial Reviews

Provides information on the DSM-IV system, for example, how to use the Culture-Bound syndromes in order to produce a Cultural Formulation. Other features include coverage of the major classes of DSM-IV disorders, concise summaries of each class of disorder, visual aids, and summaries of treatments. The physical book is poorly made<-->a book block poorly pasted into a too-small case that caused our review copy to come apart at the spine. The wise buyer will avoid bibliochiropracty and save money by purchasing the paperback and a decent case to put it in. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
