Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Simplifies and interprets the latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) and teaches professionals and clinicians how to apply the new criteria to patients. Explains how to derive a complete five-axis diagnosis, and covers diagnostic processes for each DSM-IV category, emphasizing key traits and factors and using case vignettes and evaluations. Includes chapter guides outlining every diagnosis, cross-references to disorders with similar symptoms, tips highlighting diagnostic information, and coding notes.

Synopsis:

Accessibly written and easy to use, this comprehensive book covers everything professionals and students need to know about DSM-IV. Following the same format as DSM-IV, the text presents every diagnosis. For each it includes case examples, a detailed analysis of each case, and a clear explanation of how to arrive at the diagnosis and how to rule out other possibilities. Essential for all mental health practitioners studying for their licensing exams, this hands-on resource will be valued by psychiatrists, residents, psychologists, marriage and family counselors, social workers, and anyone who needs to know about DSM-IV.

Synopsis:

In this indispensable book, master diagnostician James Morrison presents the spectrum of diagnoses in DSM-5 in an accessible, engaging, clinically useful format. Demystifying DSM-5 criteria without sacrificing accuracy, the book includes both ICD-10-CM and ICD-9-CM codes for each disorder. It also includes the Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) Scale (from DSM-IV-TR), with a clear rationale for its continued use. More than 130 detailed case vignettes illustrate typical patient presentations; down-to-earth discussions of each case demonstrate how to arrive at the diagnosis and rule out other likely possibilities. Providing a wealth of diagnostic pointers, Morrison writes with the wisdom and wit that made his guide to the prior DSM a valued resource for hundreds of thousands of clinicians. His website (www.guilford.com/jm) offers additional discussion and resources related to psychiatric diagnosis and DSM-5.

Synopsis:

DSM-IV presents a challenging task for all clinicians. Just reviewing these diagnostic standards is time consuming and often confusing even to the most experienced practitioner, but learning the standards alone does not immediately translate into clinical application. This book helps professionals quickly learn how to apply the new criteria to patients. Every DSM-IV diagnosis is simplified and clearly interpreted, emphasizing what a clinician needs to know most when making a diagnosis. Case vignettes, extensive evaluations, and the author's informed commentary combine to enable mental health practitioners to readily incorporate DSM-IV into practice. Designed to take the reader step-by-step through the diagnostic process for every DSM-IV category, the author clearly explains how to derive a complete, five-axis diagnosis. Each set of criteria is discussed in detail, illustrated by a vivid clinical vignette and interpreted in lucid terms. With this logical organization, the book provides a full course in diagnostic thinking, presented by a master clinician who has evaluated and treated over 15,000 patients.

I used it for a research paper for a class and it worked perfectly. It provided me a lage amount of information in an easy to digest format. I would reccommend this to anyone who needs the book for research and does not wish to invest in or take the time to read the larger DSM-IV
