DSM-5: Comment on the Draft
Here's your chance to weigh in on the proposed changes in fifth edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). According to the DSM web site: "For the next 6 weeks we are pleased to once again offer the opportunity to submit comments . . . This commenting period marks the third and final time DSM-5 draft criteria will be available for your feedback. Following this period the site will remain viewable with the draft proposals until DSM-5’s publication."
You'll find topics such as whether or not grief should be classified as a mental disorder, definitions of various personality disorders,clarifications about communication disorders, and information about what was called "not otherwise specified" (NOS) diagnoses. The latter was used, for example, with adult eating disorders.
The DSM page states: "A detailed listing of changes to draft proposals that have been made since July 2011 can be found on the Recent Updates page. We also encourage readers to visit each diagnostic section, which includes a brief introductory statement about changes within that section, as well as a listing of the proposed disorders for that particular section."
