There has been a great deal of controversy regarding the new diagnostic criteria with the new Diagnosis and Statistics Manual version 5 by the American Psychiatric Association. We are now beginning to use the new manual and all of our profession should have made the conversion by October of this year. Many of the controversy’s are warranted as some of the changes are rather pronounced. However, the changes have been generally thoughtful and are more researched based in most cases. I will be posting more about our experiences as we move forward.
