DSM-IV Made Easy Summary


DSM-IV Made Easy: The Clinician's Guide To Diagnosis by James Morrison

With the publication of DSM-IV, mental health practitioners are faced with the challenge of quickly learning a whole new set of diagnostic standards. Providing a simple way rapidly to become conversant with all DSM-IV categories as well as its many new criteria, this book translates DSM-IV data into a concise, accessible format, explicating and illustrating all the criteria in clear, jargon-free language. It discusses, illustrates, and interprets the criteria for every DSM-IV diagnosis. Over 100 vivid case histories give the reader a flavor of the disorder described and provide a framework for understanding the diagnostic criteria. In each, the author walks the reader through the process in step-by-step detail, discussing how he arrives at a five-axis diagnosis. Helpful features include quick guides at the beginning of every chapter pointing the way to the sought after diagnosis; tips highlighting information that will help clinicians make the diagnosis; sidelights containing historical information and other interesting facts, and editorial comments discussing diagnosis, patients, and clinical issues. This book will be invaluable to all mental health clinicians who want a quick and painless way to learn the DSM-IV criteria, psychologists and social workers studying for their state licensing exam, and graduate students taking courses in abnormal behavior and psychopathology.

DSM-IV Made Easy Reviews


'DSM-IV Made Easy helps the mental health clinician arrive at the most appropriate diagnosis for a given patient. This well-written, easy-to-read volume not only lists the applicable criteria, but also discusses them and provides useful tips about many disorders. Case vignettes supplement the text and add 'clinical flavor' to our classification system. A most useful guide for practitioners.' - David L. Dunner, MD, FACPsych, Director, Center for Anxiety and Depression, and Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, USA

'Morrison is on a mission to help clinicians. His books on interviewing and diagnosis are well written, easy to read, and enormously helpful for mental health practitioners and students.' - David L. Dunner, MD, FACPsych, Director, Center for Anxiety and Depression, and Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, USA
