Responding to the Critics of DSM-5

Darrel Regier On Why Diagnostic Changes Were Made

Despite the number of criticisms it has incurred, there was a method to the so-called madness of DSM-5. For every diagnosis that was removed or added, each diagnosis criteria that was revised, and every new symptom cluster that was created, the American Psychiatric Association insists there was a rationale behind that decision.

Darrel Regier—Vice Chair of the APA’s DSM-5 task force—is not unaware of the furor the new edition has created in the psychotherapy community. In his session from our webcast series, The Uproar Over DSM-5, he explains the process and reasoning for many of the controversial decisions, and the specific goals the task force was challenged to meet.

Watch the video clip below to hear Darrel talk about how one of the major criticisms of DSM-IV influenced some of the diagnostic changes in DSM-5.

This is just one of the insights into the creation of DSM-5 that Darrel will discuss in our brand-new webcast series.
