Dr. Stephanie Dailey discusses the book she co-authored with : Drs Carman S. Gill, Shannon L. Karl, and Casey A. Barrio Minton. In the book they present a comprehensive and easy-to-understand review of the changes in the DSM-5. In every chapter, the authors provide case studies that demonstrate these changes, along with helpful information for making diagnoses.
Among other questions Rebecca Daniel-Burke asks:
- What do you consider to be the most relevant non-diagnostic changes from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5?
- What about removal of the multi-axial system and the GAF?
- So the WHODAS is online as well as in print, can you talk a bit about the online measures the American Psychological Association has published on their website? Are these required?
- Can you explain changes to coding and recording disorders? For example, what are the grayed out numbers in parentheses in the DSM-5?
- What about recording substance use disorders?
- Can you talk a bit about modifications to disorder classifications? For example, bipolar and depressive disorders now stand alone as separate chapters.
- Speaking of specific disorders, what do you think are the most significant diagnostic changes for counselors to know?
- Can you talk about the use of specifiers? I hear there are more specifiers in this edition than any other DSM to date?
- What are some major practice implications for counselors who use the DSM, specifically how will the transition from the DSM-IV-TR to the DSM-5 will influence the work of professional counselors?
When are counselors going to start using the DSM-5?
