About the book:

"DSM-IV Guidebook" is the companion to DSM-IV, written by the experts who developed DSM-IV. Designed for the clinician, this guidebook provides a comprehensive tour through DSM-IV by the individuals who were most involved in its development. It covers how and why DSM-IV developed the way it did, and presents a clear road map of the intricacies of the organisation of the DSM diagnostic system. In this detailed volume, the clinician will find: an easy-to-use summary of the changes from DSM-III-R to DSM-IV; detailed descriptions and explanations of DSM-IV diagnoses; 24 decision trees covering the most common presenting symptoms encountered in everyday practice; a discussion of the historical and social context for DSM-IV; a special chapter discussing the increasingly important differential between primary mental disorders and disorders due to substance use of a general medical condition; and hundreds of valuable pointers concerning diagnostic assessment.
