Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This new edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5(R)), used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research. This manual, which creates a common language for clinicians involved in the diagnosis of mental disorders, includes concise and specific criteria intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings -- inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. The information contained in the manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, and occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists. DSM-5(R) is the most definitive resource for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders.

I was skeptical of buying this given the mixed reviews, but decided to take a chance as it was almost $140 less than the hospital university bookstore was selling it for and I'm glad I did!

High quality, genuine DSMV copy that was flawless.

this is a great book for any clinical counsellor. It has all the mental disorders that one may need to make a diagnosis. A great purchase. The seller offered the book at such low price which made it possible for me as a student to afford it. Seller also followed up to make sure I received my book.

The cover color looks different than what it's supposed to look like, which worried me at the beginning...but everything reads the same and looks the same as the original (compared it after). It got delivered on time, as promised, and no issues.

I'm very disappointed in the quality of this product. I am very careful around how I handle this product, yet I still experienced pages falling out.
1. Pages are of various different qualities and shades. You can see this clearly when looking at the book while it's closed.
2. Very poor craftsmanship holding the pages together. Some pages just came off (see picture)
3. I've noticed at least one occasion where one page was printed double.
4. The item arrived with the corners damaged.

This looks like a replica or a copy. My colleague has a hard-copy bought from the APA, and it does not have any of the above flaws. The coloring is also different (it's purple, whereas this one is dark blue).

I'm not sure if this is an actual DSM from APA or possibly something that shouldn't have passed quality control (e.g., cover is different shade of purple and different thickness of paper when compared Side-by-side to manual purchased direct from APA; print is faded, gaps in ink).

Having the DSM-5 for almost 60$ is a great price!! it arrived in the estimated delivery time, but not in perfect condition. The corners were folded and there is a light scratch on the cover but nothing major. Unless you are picky for your books condition, this is a great choice!

After 10+ years of waiting, it's finally here. This is the standard for diagnosing mental / psychiatric conditions - a must for all hospital libraries. I'm not qualified to determine if the book is better / worse than the last edition - but truthfully it doesn't matter. This is THE standard for all psychiatric conditions - so even if you don't agree with the book, it's the book that sets out the standards for all other professionals in the psychiatric field.

I'm not sure if the item was already damaged before it was shipped but there was some damage to the front cover. I gave it as a gift to my sister (who is a professional social worker.) She was grateful for the gift but I was a bit embarrassed that the front cover was damaged but I didn't know this ahead of time and there was not time to replace it before Christmas. I was happy with the price but wanted it to be in as new condition.
