Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders : DSM-5 (New Reference Book at the UNT Dallas Library)

Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders : DSM-5
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers. The manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, and occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists.  
DSM-5 is the most definitive resource for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders. This volume defines and classifies mental disorders and supports diagnoses, treatment, and research of mental disorders. The manual provides a common language for clinicians and includes concise and specific criteria intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings such as inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.  

The book can be referenced at the UNT Dallas Library.
