Description:
In this chapter, we highlight major structural modifications of the DSM-5 (APA, 2013), including removal of the multiaxial system and changes to chapter order; philosophical changes, such as the proposed use of dimensional and new cross-cutting assessments; and major diagnostic changes from the DSM-IV-TR to the DSM-5. To help readers better understand the revision process and the philosophy behind it, we begin with a brief description of the historical background and evolution of the DSM.



Objectives:

  1. Understand the revision process of the DSM-5, including the philosophy behind major structural modifications
  2. Examine key diagnostic changes such as removal of not otherwise specified (NOS) and use of a non-axial system
  3. Reflect upon the evolution of the DSM and how these changes impact the counseling profession
