With the publication of DSM-IV, mental health practitioners are faced with the challenge of quickly learning a whole new set of diagnostic standards. Providing a simple way rapidly to become conversant with all DSM-IV categories as well as its many new criteria, this book translates DSM-IV data into a concise, accessible format, explicating and illustrating all the criteria in clear, jargon-free language. It discusses, illustrates, and interprets the criteria for every DSM-IV diagnosis. Over 100 vivid case histories give the reader a flavor of the disorder described and provide a framework for understanding the diagnostic criteria. In each, the author walks the reader through the process in step-by-step detail, discussing how he arrives at a five-axis diagnosis. Helpful features include quick guides at the beginning of every chapter pointing the way to the sought after diagnosis; tips highlighting information that will help clinicians make the diagnosis; sidelights containing historical information and other interesting facts, and editorial comments discussing diagnosis, patients, and clinical issues. This book will be invaluable to all mental health clinicians who want a quick and painless way to learn the DSM-IV criteria, psychologists and social workers studying for their state licensing exam, and graduate students taking courses in abnormal behavior and psychopathology.
