It's a must have for nurses int he field of psychology, doctors, and for the layman who wants to understand the various psychological illness.
As with all DSV's, it present in a concise detail what to look for in an illness. It does not present a cure or counseling factor. Yet how can one understand the patient if one doesn't understand the illness.
I will recommend another work, Abnormal psychology. If one buys last years copy, for around 40.00 one can have a very decent start to a research library.
to the laymen, I would recommend it, to the student, but them before you take the course.
Again, excellent condition and is a godsend considering I was using the public library's only copy while entertaining the librarians in their dark kumite for usage time. With the government shutdown, not only was I able to finally get some time to heal my wounds but I'm able to study at my leisure in my own home. I did get a trophy at least.
I'll finally be able correctly submit for the mental disorders I've accumulated during this traumatic time.
Although there is debate about the utility of the diagnostic system set forth by the APA, my training program requires me to use the DSM criteria for diagnostic purposes. I have found this manual to be a clear, thorough guide and strongly recommend it for any professional psychologists.
My biggest point of contention when it comes to the DSM-IV-TR is that someone (who, I don't know) chose to not include complex PTSD disorders of extreme stress, not otherwise specified, as was recommended by many experts in the field (Judith Hermann among others.) Because of this, all PTSD is still lumped together in the anxiety disorders. Complex PTSD needs to be in with the dissociative disorders; all the evidence points that way. Virtually all of the diagnostic criteria for PTSD puts it in the dissociative disorders category anyway; only a limited number of the most superficial symptoms are similar to the anxiety disorders. Quite honestly, I'm not sure why it's still in there, except that some stubborn old MD's are probably still arguing for it. If PTSD can't have its own category, as it maybe should, then it likely should go in with the DD's rather than the anxiety disorders. But this is my pet peeve, clearly!

Would recommend this book.
I am happy for buying it again (in very, very good conditions) for that I had the opportunity to compare to the new DSM V.
