Great balance of critical literature / contemporary thinking about nosology Oct. 3 2011
By Lorenzo Lorenzo Luaces Valencia - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has several different chapters all united by the common thread 'what's wrong with the DSM and how to potentially fix it' (ok that's a oversimplification but you get it). Topics range from distinguishing between normality and abnormality (a chapter by J. Wakefield)to how neuroimaging could be integrated unto the DSM +5 to the validity of relational disorders as mental disorders. Clearly it's only a great read if you are interested in psychiatric nosology but in case you are, it's among the more balanced books I've seen on the subject.
