Association for Women in Psychology Press Release about DSM-5 Concerns
Bias in psychiatric diagnosis website exposes problems with new DSM-5
July 13, 2011 - The Bias in Psychiatric Diagnosis website (http://awpsych.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=102&Itemid=126) was recently updated to highlight a myriad of concerns about the upcoming 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) that is scheduled to be released in 2013.
Published by the American Psychiatric Association, the DSM-5 is a reference text used to diagnose what its authors choose to label "mental disorders"; however, numerous individuals, including three editors of previous DSM editions, and professional organizations, including the Association for Women in Psychology and the American Counseling Association, have expressed misgivings about the ethics, science, implications and processes involved with the new manual development.
