Flipping Through The Handbook of Mental Illness

Flipping Through The Handbook of Mental Illness 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.



Dr. Richard Rakos, Associate Dean in the College of Sciences and Health Professions at CSU
Dr. James Overholser, Professor in the CWRU Department of Psychology
Dr. Gary Greenberg, Therapist and Author of “The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry.”
Dr. Max Wiznitzer, Pediatric Neurologist at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital
