What’s the Impact of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM5)?
What will the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders answer for you? Maybe you have questions about Hypersexuality and Technology? Will you find your answer in the new addition coming out next month?
I won’t waste your time trying to explain all the new diagnoses which I don’t understand half of them myself. Remember, I’m just a cartoonist. Instead, I will defer you to a more educated understanding of what the impact of the DSM5 will have on you. Please take some time and read over: Final DSM 5 Approved by American Psychiatric Association by John M. Grohol, PsyD Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Psych Central.
