New mental disorders introduced in soon to be released “bible of pyschiatry”

Posted on under Today's research

As many know the new edition DSM, the psychiatrist’s bible of mental disorders, will soon be out. This is the 5th iteration of this diagnosis guide, and by far the most controversial. It enormously extends the range of diagnosable mental disorders, some with little actual research foundation.

Over the medium-long term this is going to greatly complicate the life of HR personnel, legal departments, law firm ER departments and others dealing with employee  welfare. The following link to a brilliant (in terms of content) article in the latest edition of Psychiatric Times is therefore a must-read for all concerned.
