Time lapse between current and previous publications: 13 years (2013 vs 2000).
Includes the fully revised diagnostic classification, as well as all of the diagnostic criteria from DSM-5 TM in an easy-to-use format.
The most remarkable structural change of the Fifth Edition is getting rid of 5-axial system
The new classification combines the axes together and rates the disorders by severity. The old classification grouped diagnoses down into independent dimensions called axes.
The diagnosis Mental Retardation is changed to intellectual developmental disorder.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is the new category for autistic disorder, Asperger disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified.
Binge Eating Disorder is a new to the group - anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and eating disorder NOS - three different conditions which are placed in the Eating Disorders group.
Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD) is a new category.
New to the DSM-5 is bringing together obsessive-compulsive and other disorders previously arranged under category of Impulse Control Disorder into a broader class of disorders. Two new conditions added are excoriation (skin-picking) and hoarding disorder. In my opinion, that was a premature move.
In Personality Disorders category, all 10 disorders from DSM-IV remained, but the axes boundaries separating them from other psychiatric disorders were removed.
New chapter Trauma- and stressor-related disorders includes posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a new diagnostic sub-type for pre-school children.
