Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Understanding the DSM-5
Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis was released on September 9. It’s available on Amazon and other major ebook retailers.
Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis aims to cut through the misinformation, stigma, and assumptions that surround mental illness and give a clear picture of what mental illness really is.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5th edition (DSM-5) has been criticized for overly subjective diagnostic criteria and pathologizing normal human experience. This book will discuss the right and the wrong way to use the DSM, and the problems inherent in trying to diagnose oneself or others.
A wide range of DSM diagnoses will be covered. With a fusion of diagnostic information, clinical experience, and lived experience, this book offers a unique, well-rounded perspective on the reality of mental illness.
