As a companion to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5[trademark]), the DSM-5[trademark] Guidebook serves two critical functions. First, it acts as a guide for busy clinicians in need of practical information on the use of diagnostic criteria and codes, documentation, and compensation. Second, it serves as an educational text and includes a structured curriculum that facilitates its use in courses and workshops. The guidebook demystifies DSM-5[trademark] and makes the content more accessible. The publication of DSM-5[trademark] has an enormous impact on every mental health professional, but especially clinicians, who need to know how to implement the diagnostic classification in their practices.
