Examining the Most Controversial Change in DSM-5

Gary Greenberg On The Bereavement Exclusion


Of all the critics of DSM-5, few have been as vocal as Gary Greenberg, author of The Book of Woe: DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry.

When examining the various changes made in this new edition, Gary finds the most controversial one to be the removal of the bereavement exclusion from the major depression diagnosis; a decision that could be seen as an attempt to pathologize periods of grief and mourning.

Watch the clip below from Gary’s session in our new webcast series, The Uproar Over DSM-5, to get some background on this controversial edit and learn why the bereavement exclusion was initially created in DSM-III.

This is just one of the debates raised by DSM-5 that Gary will discuss in our brand-new webcast series.
