APA Offers Guidance on Use of DSM-5

Last month the American Psychiatric Association (APA) published the fifth edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and recently has followed it with guidance on how to use the new manual. APA published the attached guide and reorganized its DSM-5 development website, including information about implementation of the manual, frequently asked questions, coding corrections and an opportunity for users to submit questions and feedback about the manual. The site also offers links to educational webinars about the DSM-5.
