DSM IV or maybe V

Ever heard of the DSM IV? If you are in psychology or nursing, you probably have or will. This book is THE book used in diagnosing mental disorders. DSM stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and it is published by the American Psychiatric Association.  Well, the APA is going to updating the 4th edition with the 5th edition in the next couple of years.  The DSM is very important, and (naturally) it is has also been very controversial over the decades.  I wanted to share a couple of pieces about the DSM, its edits, and its uses.
