Psychologists and psychiatrists alike depend on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual to identify mental illnesses. This year, a fifth version of the DSM was released, the first upgrade in 13 years. We take a look at what's new, like Internet Gaming Disorder or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, plus what's gone, like Asperger's. We'll also speak with clinicians about how they use the manual.
