American Psychiatric Association Board of Trustees Approves DSM-5 Diagnostic manual passes major milestone before May 2013 publication

ARLINGTON, Va. (December 1, 2012) – The American Psychiatric Association (APA) Board of Trustees has approved the final diagnostic criteria for the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The trustees’ action marks the end of the manual’s comprehensive revision process, which has spanned over a decade and included contributions from more than 1,500 experts in psychiatry, psychology, social work, psychiatric nursing, pediatrics, neurology, and other related fields from 39 countries. These final criteria will be available when DSM-5 is completed and published in spring 2013.

³The Board of Trustees approval of the criteria is a vote of confiden ce for DSM-5,´said D i lip Jeste, M D, president of APA. ³W e developed DSM-5 by utilizing the best experts in the field and extensive reviews of the scientific literature and original research, and we have produced a manual that best represents the current science and will be useful to clinicians and the patients they serve.´

DSM-5 is the guidebook used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders. Now that the criteria have been approved, review of the criteria and text describing the disorders will continue to undergo final editing and then publication by American Psychiatric Publishing.

The manual will include approximately the same number of disorders that were included in DSM-IV. This goes against the trend from other areas of medicine that increase the number of diagnoses annually.

³We have sought to be conservative in our approach to revising DSM-5. Our work has been aimed at more accurately defining mental disorders that have a real impact on people’s lives, not ex panding the scope of psychiatry,´ said David J. Kupfer, MD, chair of the DSM-5 Task Force. ³I’m thrilled to have the Board of Trustees’ support for the revisions and for us to move forward toward the publication.´

Organization of DSM-5

DSM-5 will be comprised of three sections:


x Section 1 will give an introduction to DSM-5 with information on how to use the updated m an u al

x Section 2 will outline the categorical diagnoses according to a revised chapter organization; and

x Section 3 will include conditions that require further research before their consideration as formal disorders, as well as cultural formulations, glossary, the names of individuals i n volved in DSM-5’sdevelopment and other information.

Collaborative Process for Development of DSM-5

Beginning in 1999, during the initial phase of this DSM revision, the APA engaged almost 400 international research investigators in 13 conferences supported by the National Institutes of Health. To invite comments from the wider research, clinical and consumer communities, the APA launched a DSM-5 Prelude website in 2004 to garner questions, comments, and research finding s during the development process.

Starting in 2007 and 2008, the DSM-5 Task Force and Work Groups, made up of more than 160 world-renowned clinicians and researchers, were tasked with building on the previous seven


years of scientific reviews, conducting additional focused reviews, and garnering input from a breadth of advisors as the basis for proposing draft criteria. In addition to the Work Groups in diagnostic categories, study groups were assigned to review gender, age and cross-cultural issues. The Work Groups have led the effort to review the scientific advances and research-based information that have formed the basis of the content for DSM-5.

The first draft of proposed changes was posted publicly on the website http://www.DSM in February 2010 and the site also posted two subsequent drafts. With each draft, the site accepted feedback on proposed changes, receiving more than 13,000 comments on draft diagnostic criteria from mental health clinicians and researchers, the overall medical community, and patients, families, and advocates. Following each comment period, the DSM-5 Task Force and Work Groups reviewed and considered each response and made revisions where warranted.

The Work Groups’ proposals were evaluated by the Task Force and two panels convened specifically to evaluate the proposals—a Scientific Review Committee and a Clinical and Public Health Committee. The Scientific Review Committee looked at the supporting data for proposed changes. The Clinical and Public Health Committee was charged with assessing the potential impact of changes to clinical practice and public health. Additionally, there was a forensic review by members of the Council on Psychiatry and Law.

All of the reviews were coordinated in meetings of the Summit Group, which includes the DSM-5 Task Force co-chairs, and review committee co-chairs, consultants, and members of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees. The criteria were then put before the A PA Assembly for review and approval. The Board of Trustees’ review was the final step in this multilevel, comprehensive process.

³At every step of development, we have worked to make the process as open and i nc lu si ve as possible. The level of transparency we have strived for is not seen in any other area of medicine,´ said James H. Scully, MD, medical director and chief executive officer of A PA.

Attachment A: Select Decisions Made by APA Board of Trustees Overall Changes

x Chapter order: DSM-5’s20 chapters will be restructured based on disorders’ apparent relatedness to one another, as reflected by similarities in disorders’ underlying vulnerabilities and symptom characteristics. The changes will align DSM-5 with the World H ealth Organization’s (WHO) International Classification of Diseases, eleventh edition (ICD-11) and are expected to facilitate improved communication and common use of diagnoses across disorders within chapters.

x Removal of multiaxial system: DSM-5 w ill m ove to a non ax ial doc um en tat ion of diagnosis, combining the former Axes I, II, and III, with separate notations for psychosocial and contextual factors (formerly Axis IV) and disability (formerly Axis V).

Section 2 Disorders

  1. Autism spectrum disorder: The criteria will incorporate several diagnoses from DSM-IV i nc lu di ng au ti sti c disorder, A sp erger’s disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder (not otherwise specified), into the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder for DSM-5 to help more accurately and consistently diagnose children with autism.
  2. Binge eating disorder will be moved from DSM-IV’sA ppendix B: Criteria Sets and Axes Provided for Further Study to DSM-5 Section 2. The change is intended to better represent the symptoms and behaviors of people with this condition.
  3. Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder w ill be i nc lu d ed i n DSM-5 to diagnose children who exhibit persistent irritability and frequent episodes of behavior outbursts three or more times a week for more than a year. The diagnosis is intended to address concerns about potential over-diagnosis and overtreatment of bipolar disorder in children.
  4. Excoriation (skin-picking) disorder is new to DSM-5 and will be included in the Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders chapter.
  5. Hoarding disorder is new to DSM-5. Its addition to DSM is supported by extensive scientific research on this disorder. This disorder will help characterize people with persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of their actual value. The behavior usually has harmful effects—emotional, physical, social, financial and even legal— for a hoarder and family members.
  6. Pedophilic disorder criteria will remain unchanged from DSM-IV, but the disorder name will be revised from pedophilia to pedophilic disorder.
  7. Personality disorders: DSM-5 will maintain the categorical model and criteria for the 10 personality disorders included in DSM-IV and will include the new trait-specific methodology in a separate area of Section 3 to encourage further study how this could be used to diagnose personality disorders in clinical practice.
  8. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) will be included in a new chapter in DSM-5 on Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders. DSM-5 pays more attention to the behavioral symptoms that accompany PTSD and proposes four distinct diagnostic clusters instead of three. PTSD will also be more developmentally sensitive for children and adolescents.
  9. Removal of bereavement exclusion: the ex cl u si on criterion i n DSM-IV applied to people experiencing depressive symptoms lasting less than two months following the death of a loved one has been removed and replaced by several notes within the text delineating the


differences between grief and depression. This reflects the recognition that bereavement is a severe psychosocial stressor that can precipitate a major depressive episode beginning soon after the loss of a loved one.

  1. Specific learning disorder broadens the DSM-IV criteria to represent distinct disorders which interfere with the acquisition and use of one or more of the following academic skills: oral language, reading, written language, or mathematics.
  2. Substance use disorder will combine the DSM-IV categories of substance abuse and substance dependence. In this one overarching disorder, the criteria have not only been combined, but strengthened. Previous substance abuse criteria required only one symptom while the DSM-5’smild substance use disorder requires two to three symptoms.

  • ¡El cedro no tolera la maceta!


  • Se multiplicaron unos pequeños grupúsculoss restauracionistas; yo los llamo fundamentalistas. Como usted dijo, en este cúmulo de incertezas les dicen a los jóvenes: “Hacé asi y asá”. Entonces un pibe o una chica de diecisiete o dieciocho años se entusiasman, le meten para adelante en directivas de rigidez y, en verdad, les hipotecan la vida y a los treinta explotan. Porque no los prepararon para superar las mil y una crisis de la vida, incluso los mil y uno fallos que uno tiene, las mil y una injusticias que uno comete. No tienen elementos para conocer o entender lo que es la misericordia de Dios, por ejemplo. Ese tipo de religiosidad, bien rígida, se disfraza con doctrinas que pretenden dar justificaciones, pero en realidad privan de la libertad y no dejan crecer a la gente. En gran parte terminan en la doble vida.

  • Lo que eres habla tan fuerte, que no se te escucha lo que dices.

  • Mira, no tengo tiempo para tales estudios (una leyenda local griega, cada uno puede remplazarla con algo de su interés objetivo....). Te diré por qué.... Antes debo conocerme a mí mismo, como dice la inscripción de Defos, y veo claramente el ridículo que significaría que yo, que aún carezco de ese conocimiento, me entregara a examinar cosas ajenas a él.

  • Judas no nos escandaliza. Pero imaginemos que a Judas lo hubieran encubierto los Apóstoles, disimulando sus afanos o la traición, o justificandola con el argumento de que "Dios escribe derecho con líneas torcidas": eso sería escandaloso.


  • La clase de filosofía que se elige, depende por tanto de la clase de hombre que se es: pues un sistema filosófico no es un mobiliario muerto que se puede rechazar o aceptar a nuestro antojo, sino que está vivificado por el alma del hombre que lo tiene.

  • Únicamente debe elegirse el atajo cuando estamos seguros de alcanzar íntegramente la meta [un hombre pleno] que buscamos en ese atajo. Y esta meta [el hombre pleno] no se podría alcanzar si al hombre no se le permitiese pecar [el atajo hacia el hombre pleno: coartar la libertad].

  • He sufrido mucho en mi vida por causa de sacerdotes estúpidos, cansados, obnubilados y aun malvados; pero ahora sé lo bastante de mí como para ser consciente de que no debo abandonar la Iglesia (que para mí significaría abandonar la alianza con Nuestro Señor) por ninguno de estos motivos: debería abandonarla porque no creo...
