Revised to reflect significant changes in the field, this textbook provides a thorough overview of major diagnostic categories of adult psychiatric disorders using DSM nomenclature. Since publication of the first edition in 1984, DSM-III-R has appeared; DSM-IV is anticipated; data has been adduced in support of existing diagnostic categories; and new semi-structured and structured interview schedules have been developed. Taking full account of these changes, it contains 17 chapters, 10 of them totally new and the remainder substantially revised. Divided into three parts, the text begins with an overview of models of psychiatric classification and practical use of DSM-III-R. The second part offers a detailed clinical picture of specific syndromes, covering crucial diagnostic criteria, major theories of etiology and emphasis on assessment and measurement of behavior comprising the syndrome. Closes with a discussion of special topics related to DSM-III-R.

Now, in response to new developments in theory and research, as well as changes in service delivery within the field, the second edition contains updated and accessible information on how mental illnesses develop and how they can be treated within a social work framework that recognizes the importance of family, economics, and culture as well as biochemical and psychodynamic factors. Each chapter is written by the leading social work authority on that subject and includes practical, in-depth discussion of state-of-the-art technologies, treatments, and research.
