The DSM-5 is here!

DSM-5The fifth edition of the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) is now available through the Briscoe Library, in print and online. The print edition is located in the library’s Reserve collection and online access is available through the Psychiatry Online database.
Both versions can also be found in the library catalog.

The DSM-5 is the most definitive resource for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders. This edition includes a revised organizational structure that strives to meet the needs of various health professionals.

For an in-depth look at the revisions made in the DSM-5, check out The Intelligent Clinician’s Guide to the DSM-5, by Joel Paris. In this book, Paris provides an evidence-based critique of DSM-5 and offers suggestions for how to get the most out of this resource.
