    I routinely describe for my clients that a diagnosis is a label that attempts to describe their symptom clusters, and attempts to provide a common starting point for potential etiology in some cases, and potential approaches to treatments.

    To follow the biological developments, what would be the top three sources for current information on an on-going basis?

    Thank you for this diverse, yet stimulating discussion of the DSM-5. I have benefitted from hearing the different perspectives provided by the presenters, as well as appreciated the content given by each. It certainly has assisted me in formulating a context for which to approach this “dictionary of disorders” prior to actually reading it.

    I found this series superb in every way! It was informative, educational, interesting and thought-provoking. It definitely brought me up to speed on this important topic and it also validated my personal feelings about diagnosis and assessment that I’ve quietly harbored for decades. The speakers were amazing in their breadth and depth on the subject, each one bringing an important expertise and perspective. I always enjoy the Networker courses I take but I have to say that you outdid yourselves on this one! Thank you so much!

    Helpful overview. I especially liked hearing Mays’ four major areas for diagnoses, the info on the epigenome, and glimpses of possible future directions for reducing brain-related causes of human suffering and exclusion.

    Thanks for this entire series–very informative and helpful! I hope you have another class on the DSM5 after it becomes more widely used.
