Summary

Make the DSM-IV-TR user-friendly with this powerful learning tool!

This expanded and updated edition of Dr. Munson's highly acclaimed book is the indispensable companion volume and guide to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition-Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR), published by the American Psychiatric Association. The only study guide currently available for the DSM-IV-TR, The Mental Health Diagnostic Desk Reference, Second Edition, provides clear, cogent expositions of every disorder in the manual. All the information in this edition has been updated to reflect the new thinking and the current criteria.

Easy to use in a consistent, all-inclusive format, The Mental Health Diagnostic Desk Reference, Second Edition, offers a detailed explanation of every part of the DSM-IV-TR, from its multi-axial classification system to the criteria for diagnosing individual disorders. It offers guidelines of diagnosis, examples of treatment planning, and 81 helpful illustrations, including color-coded supplemental visuals highlighting the diagnostic criteria for disorders most frequently encountered in clinical practice. It even features a thorough review of the 26 syndromes considered for inclusion in the DSM-IV-TR that did not reach the research criteria for a full-scale disorder.

In addition, The Mental Health Diagnostic Desk Reference, Second Edition, is the only guide to applying the new culture-bound syndromes. It even includes a detailed case example of preparing a cultural formulation. References are provided at the end of each chapter, and a master reference list is printed at the end of the book, which enhances ease of use.

Summaries for each class of disorders include:

  • a listing of codes and disorders
  • a fundamental features section describing core aspects of disorders
  • brief tips to highlight significant information and helpful diagnostic techniques
  • differential diagnosis strategies and tips
  • standardized measures and scales recommended for their effectiveness, ease of use, brevity of administration, and cost
  • recommended reading
  • Written by nationally respected clinician, supervisor, and educator Dr. Carlton Munson, The Mental Health Diagnostic Desk Reference, Second Edition, will help end clinical gridlock and enable you to improve services to your clients within the context of managed care.
