DSM-V

Through a new subscription to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) Premium collection, the Library System now has access to the DSM-V, the handbook used by health care professionals in the United States and much of the world as the authoritative guide to the diagnosis of mental disorders. DSM contains descriptions, symptoms and other criteria for diagnosing mental disorders. It provides a common language for clinicians to communicate about their patients and establishes consistent and reliable diagnoses that can be used in the research of mental disorders. It also provides a common language for researchers to study the criteria for potential future revisions and to aid in the development of medications and other interventions.

This new electronic resource has dynamic navigation and search functions and provides access to the previous versions of the DSM, which can be downloaded as PDFs. Each of the individual titles that make up DSM Premium has individual catalog records in the WSU catalog. The DSM collection also gives us the texts: DSM V Handbook of Differential Diagnosis and DSM V Clinical Cases.
