The DSM 5: Beyond Skepticism and into Practicality
David Cecil, PhD, LCSW
The DSM 5 (American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2013) represents dramatic shifts in how we categorize mental disorders. There are numerous considerations including international compatibility, practical implications, and controversies. In order to continue to competently and ethically integrate faith and social work, Christians in social work must stay current on these revisions. This podcast provides a brief overview of the history and focus of the DSM, as well as provide a summary of the most important changes in the DSM5.
