    My three cats Maslow, Ashley and Fanci were browsing my book shelf again Ashley s gray paw caught on a big silver book that crashed to the floor Ashley, what did I tell you about helping yourself to the books Sorry Ashley looked a little peeved Frankly I would rather help myself to the tuna cans Maslow looked the book over What s a Dasm Fourster I checked it out Oh, you mean the DSM IV TR also known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fourth Edition Revised My three cats Maslow, Ashley and Fanci were browsing my book shelf again Ashley s gray paw caught on a big silver book that crashed to the floor Ashley, what did I tell you about helping yourself to the books Sorry Ashley looked a little peeved Frankly I would rather help myself to the tuna cans Maslow looked the book over What s a Dasm Fourster I checked it out Oh, you mean the DSM IV TR also known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fourth Edition Revised Maslow and Ashley were interested but I noticed Fanci had fallen asleep by the time I got to Statistical Having read the DSM IV, I knew the feeling So Maslow persisted What the heck is it It is a book that categorizes the various forms of mental disorders that humans experience Its main purpose is for the billing for insurances, giving doctors a label to place their diagnoses but barring that somewhat cynical outlook, I ve found it helpful in my career as a clinical social worker for identifying groups of symptoms and designing treatments Now Ashley s eyes started to glaze over I knew I ve gone on too long for felines If you want to have a decent conversation with most cats, you have to mention food every three or four words.However Maslow was intrigued Have you read the entire book It s mainly for reference But I ve used it so much that it feels like I ve read the entire book Do you mean I can use this book to analyze Ashley and Fanci Well, I wouldn t recommend you do that but Or analyze you Well. Is there an Internet Addiction Disorder Not Yet, but it is being considered for the fifth edition So now you re normal but you might be neurotic next year Now I was starting to get nervous Time to change the tone of the conversation Actually, Maslow It s not in the book but I ve noticed that certain animals show traits of some human disorders Like most dogs fit into Dependent Personality Disorder and most parrots are Paranoid Schizophrenic Yeah I remember that blue crowned conure you had Always talking to himself But what about cats Easy Cats are Narcissistic Personalities Meaning They think they re the center of the universe Maslow thought about that And that is a bad thing Maslow, old buddy If you re going to be Wonder Cat and take up reading, maybe you should start with something a little easier Maslow perused the book shelf How about this one I read the title The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind Now this should be interesting

    I feel the need to use the DSM to psychoanalyze the reviewers of this book Whoa It seems like people are personally offended by the existence of the DSM Well, I for one, as a mental health professional, am quite glad that it exists because without it, I would be left to my own devices There are many crazy therapists out there who would be diagnosing people with the most outlandish things possible if there weren t some guidelines in place The DSM is not any of the following and if you re goi I feel the need to use the DSM to psychoanalyze the reviewers of this book Whoa It seems like people are personally offended by the existence of the DSM Well, I for one, as a mental health professional, am quite glad that it exists because without it, I would be left to my own devices There are many crazy therapists out there who would be diagnosing people with the most outlandish things possible if there weren t some guidelines in place The DSM is not any of the following and if you re going to review it, keep this in mind 1 Lite summer reading for by the pool 2 Interesting to anyone who doesn t work in the field or 3 Speaking about you personally I was just surprised to see how fired up people get about this I certainly don t put much stock in some of the diagnoses and I m looking forward to the DSM V update but I find it to at the very least be a necessary evil It s kinda like if people were to complain that the dictionary didn t entertain them, is too rigid, or that words should not be defined by letters Everything including mental illness has to have some language associated with it to better allow people to talk about it and address problems What people chose to do with the labels within the DSM is the bigger problem Diagnosis is one tool of many that the clinician works with It shouldn t be the only consideration and it certainly doesn t define the totality of a person For those of you who left scathing reviews of this book, I ask you to consider the alternative If there was no DSM, diagnosing wouldn t disappear As others mentioned, it s a requirement of the insurance companies So would you rather have people pulling names of made up illnesses out of a hat At least there are some guidelines in place

    In my experience, seasoned, sensitive, forward thinking clinicians the ones mostly interested in, like, helping people with their problems and, like, listening without judgment claim to be kinda down on the DSM It s an insurance company handbook, they say It s a pharmaceutical company catalog It s subjectivity masquerading as objective medical fact Good points I mean if you ve ever had any doubt at all about the cultural impact on perceptions of mental illness, you need only compare DSM In my experience, seasoned, sensitive, forward thinking clinicians the ones mostly interested in, like, helping people with their problems and, like, listening without judgment claim to be kinda down on the DSM It s an insurance company handbook, they say It s a pharmaceutical company catalog It s subjectivity masquerading as objective medical fact Good points I mean if you ve ever had any doubt at all about the cultural impact on perceptions of mental illness, you need only compare DSM I 1952, roughly 100ish pages long to DSM IV TR 2000, roughly 900 pages long.That said, I m totally into the DSM IV TR and totally excited about DSM V slated for release around 2010, I think New pathologies are fun Personally, I d like to see another Personality Disorder or two in DSM V Granted I m less interested in using the DSM to diagnose clients as I am in using it to diagnose friends, family, acquaintances, and strangers in the supermarket for my own personal amusement

    Where do I begin It s hard to say that this is a good book or that this is a bad book This is a diagnostic manual used to diagnose mental disorders But maybe I should not be so quick to conclude that this is all the DSM is The DSM is also a cultural artifact It is the product of a so called scientific community, largely the psychiatric profession, that for better and or worse, has powerful effects One of the biggest shortcomings of the DSM is that it fails to understand the ethical imp Where do I begin It s hard to say that this is a good book or that this is a bad book This is a diagnostic manual used to diagnose mental disorders But maybe I should not be so quick to conclude that this is all the DSM is The DSM is also a cultural artifact It is the product of a so called scientific community, largely the psychiatric profession, that for better and or worse, has powerful effects One of the biggest shortcomings of the DSM is that it fails to understand the ethical imperative to recognize the necessary connection between observer and observed To see that its mental disorders sayabout the diagnosticians than the so called patients that they are diagnosing Except for a handful of the mental disorders in the DSM e.g., schizophrenia which may some day beclearly understood as brain disorders, most of the diagnoses in this manual are social constructions I teach psychopathology in Masters level courses for a counseling program and encourage students to challenge taken for granted assumptions about diagnosis, pathology, and traditional hierarchical relationships between clinicians and clients I also suggest, however, that in a society where a medical model prevails, there are good reasons to use the DSM, including insurance reimbursement I say, what s all the fuss The DSM, itself, points out that its manual does not diagnose people but, rather, conditions Moreover, I recommend that one view any given diagnosis as a set of if then criteria If you accept that an individual meets such criteria, then they have that diagnosis Simple, right Well, not really Our biases, assumptions influences what we do and do not observe hence, some clinicians will look for and observe some criteria, whereas others will observe other criteria Mental health counseling is not like drawing blood for a medical test Inter rater reliability, from my experience, is not very good when it comes to the DSM It could be said that a mental health diagnostic interview is often a projective test for the therapist

    I gave it 5 stars just to be a dick But really It s just a fucking book Relax already I know managed care sucks But try to imagine what the fields of psychiatry and clinical psychology were like before diagnostic criteria and strict licensure standards Running with scissors anyone P.S check out Nicole s review She has read it front to back several times Wow That s hard core I love nerding out on this stuff as much as the next guy, but dangalang, reading and re reading a reference I gave it 5 stars just to be a dick But really It s just a fucking book Relax already I know managed care sucks But try to imagine what the fields of psychiatry and clinical psychology were like before diagnostic criteria and strict licensure standards Running with scissors anyone P.S check out Nicole s review She has read it front to back several times Wow That s hard core I love nerding out on this stuff as much as the next guy, but dangalang, reading and re reading a reference manual Cover to cover Its like 900 pages Why would anyone willingly do that

    Bottom line, this is a diagnostic manual used to diagnose mental disorders, which in my opinion cannot be measured and is largely affected, or I should say manipulated, by various variables such as the interviewee s culture background, ethnicity, communication, perception, in the moment emotions, etc, to name a few and the interviewer s interviewing skills, cultural sensitivity, personal bias and ingrained assumptions, etc, to name a few Because of its unmeasurability, the constantly changing Bottom line, this is a diagnostic manual used to diagnose mental disorders, which in my opinion cannot be measured and is largely affected, or I should say manipulated, by various variables such as the interviewee s culture background, ethnicity, communication, perception, in the moment emotions, etc, to name a few and the interviewer s interviewing skills, cultural sensitivity, personal bias and ingrained assumptions, etc, to name a few Because of its unmeasurability, the constantly changing social constructions and numerous variables that cannot be controlled, DSM IV is NOT scientifically based It may provide a platform for mental health professionals to exchange psychiatric jargons but it should be the least tool to be used to label a person, or worst, justify pharmacological treatment What a person presents is their symptoms, as DSM VI would call it what a person doesn t tell is their story, a story that needs to be heard BTW, if you take out the criteria the symptoms must cause marked distress or significant impairment in daily functioning listed in every disorder, you will find that you have a little bit flavor of most disorders

    i learned that it is possible to diagnose friends, loved ones, and myself with many disorders I also learned that it is probable that there s nothing wrong with any of us Still waiting for the DSM to focus on what s right
