"Among many of the ethical issues clinicians encounter in their practice, diagnosing someone with a given mental disorder just for the purpose of reimbursement of services is perhaps the number one ethical dilemma. This book is an outstanding review of the conceptual and empirical literature on this particular dilemma. But the most important contribution of this book is that it provides an extensive discussion of clinical strategies and case vignettes that clinicians could use in diagnosing mental disorder and as the same time attending to ethical standards governing their discipline." - Freddy A. Paniagu, University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston

Beyond the DSM Story presents challenges to the Diagnostic Statistical Model (DSM) system from ethical and cultural perspectives, critically evaluating its fit with other professional and theoretical orientations. It offers possible solutions or best practices for addressing ethical, theoretical, and contextual quandaries, along with experiential activities that challenge the reader to think critically about both the problems and the solutions associated with DSM diagnosis. Beyond the DSM Story presents an atheoretical model for incorporating alternative models with DSM assessment. Instructors, students and practitioners will benefit from this critical appraisal of the DSM.
