The Four Domains of Mental Illness: An Alternative to the DSM-5 (Paperback)Rene J. Muller (author)
- We can order this
The Four Domains of Mental Illness presents an authentic and valid alternative to the DSM-5, which author Rene J. Muller argues has resulted in many patients being incorrectly diagnosed and wrongly medicated. Dr. Muller points out where the DSM-5 is mistaken and offers a guide to diagnosis based on the psychobiology of psychiatrist Adolf Meyer and the insights of existential philosophy and psychiatry. His model identifies the phenomena of the mental illnesses that clinicians most often see, which are characterized by identifying their structure, or partial structure. Using the FDMI approach, clinicians can grasp how each mental illness is an aberration of Martin Heidegger's being-in-the-world.

"One of the vexing `realities' of working in the mental health professions is trying to understand the complicated symptom profiles of actual persons in stark contrast to the clearly demarcated syndromes of the official classification systems. Inspired by great psychopathologists of the past-Jaspers, Meyer, and McHugh-Rene J. Muller wrestles with this contrast directly. He systematizes our prevailing classifications and offers an enlightening perspective on the interaction between personhood and psychiatric distress."
