You probably know, but in case you don't - there's an opportunity to comment on the proposed criteria for the fifth edition of APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
This is the first complete revision of the DSM since 1994. As many of you are aware, DSM criteria are used for diagnosis, treatment planning and often times screwing people over. In light of many advances in research since the last revision, many suggested changes have been proposed. This is an important opportunity to offer your comments on the new criteria.
The proposed DSM-5 draft criteria will be available for review and comment at www.DSM5.org from February 10 to April 20, 2010.
